Dunham 2005 Trutina Red Wine Red (Columbia Valley (WA))
Winemaker Eric Dunham says this is the winery's best-selling red. The basically Bordeaux blend now includes about 13% Syrah, which stands out in the nose as an earthy, composty note. This wine needs just a little time to breathe open, and then the mix of tangy red fruits, spice, earth and toast comes into play. Flavors follow, mixing black cherry, berry and balsamic. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples.

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
