Brian Carter 2009 Corrida Tempranillo-Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon-Garnacha-Cabernet Franc Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

Editors' Choice

Based on Tempranillo, this red blend is filled out with 15% Merlot, 7% Grenache, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It's the best Corrida yet, concentrated, compact and lightly smoky. Dense boysenberry fruit anchors the core, with a deep brambly flavor that's reminiscent of old-vine Zinfandel. The dark, plush finish lingers sensuously. Paul Gregutt
