Cairdeas 2016 Consonance Red (Yakima Valley)
Petit Sirah makes up half of this wine, with the rest Syrah (45%) and a pinch of Viognier. The aromas aren't ready to reveal their charms on first pour, opening to reveal notes of plum, blue fruit, smoked meat, black pepper, flower, herb and dried tangerine peel. Plump, appealing fruit, floral and savory flavors follow. Once it gets going, it captivates. Sean P. Sullivan

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
