Buty 2005 Merlot-Cabernet Franc (Columbia Valley (WA))

The final blend was done right before bottling, and this young wine is still knitting itself together. The Cab Franc contributes a lovely, graceful aromatic layer with pretty strawberry and brioche; while the Merlot is the dark fruit foundation, with nicely-applied cinnamon spice. A floral quality emerges as the wine breathes. Paul Gregutt
