Brian Carter 2015 Trentenaire Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

This is always one of the more interesting wines in the state, a Petit Verdot (55%) dominant blend, rounded out with Cabernet Franc (19%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), Merlot (10%) and Malbec. I am not aware of another like it. Aromas of roasted coffee bean and green herb are out front, followed by notes of dark chocolate, spice, herb and cherry. Barrel flavors are forward at present, but there's plenty behind them to pull it off. Petit Verdot's unique acid and tannin structure carry it. It should have a long life in front of it Sean P.
