Brian Carter 2002 L'Etalon Red (Yakima Valley)

This is the winery's core Bordeaux blend (“étalon” means “stallion” in French), and it delivers firm, full, even fleshy flavors. All five Bordeaux varieties are included in the blend. A ripe though not quite voluptuous style, it shows the fruit well with a solid presence and nice, firm structure. Polished but still youthful, it takes the new oak in stride and should continue to evolve nicely over the next decade. Paul Gregutt
