Brian Carter 2004 Byzance Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

Byzance is a southern Rhône blend, but quite different in 2004 from the 2003. Here Grenache is more than half the blend, Syrah and Mourvèdre making up the rest. Fragrant and laden with plummy, smoky, woodsy aromas, this seductive wine offers myriad pleasures, not the least of which are its floral underpinnings. Fresh red apples, tart berries, blue plums and more open out with engaging complexity. The oak (20% new) is just right. Paul Gregutt
