Brian Carter 2005 Byzance Red Wine Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

The 2005 Byzance now includes roughly 21% Mourvèdre, along with the 57% Grenache and 22% Syrah. Young and tight, it's scented with fresh raspberries and cocoa. The fruit flavors include red currant and spicy cherry as well, and it feels sleek and elegant, though confined. The way the wine spreads out across the palate is encouraging, as are the hints of pepper, herb and stone. Decant before drinking. Paul Gregutt
