Cairdeas 2016 Caislén an Pápa Boushey Vineyard Red (Yakima Valley)

Editors' Choice

This wine is a blend of 37% Grenache, 28% Mourvèdre, 16% Syrah, 11% Counoise and 10% Cinsault, coming from one of the state's top Rhône variety sites. High-toned, thoroughly enchanting aromas of raspberry gummy, huckleberry, fresh ground black pepper, smoked meat and rose hips are followed by initially elegantly styled fruit flavors that bring a sense of freshness, broadening over time. Smoked meat and white pepper notes linger on the long finish. It brings all of the freshness and elegance of the vintage. Give it time to open up and it delivers, with a long life in front of it. Sean P. Sullivan
