Kevin White 2016 La Fraternite Red (Yakima Valley)

Editors' Choice

This wine is a blend of 64% Upland and Boushey Grenache along with 27% Sugarloaf Mourvèdre and 9% Boushey Syrah, all aged in neutral oak. The aromas are knee buckling, with notes of huckleberry, black raspberry, leather, black pepper, stargazer lily, kirsch and orange peel, showing an outrageous sense of purity. The palate bursts with soft black pepper, smoked meat and red and blue fruit flavors that persist on the finish. It's all about purity, but there's a sense of freshness as well that is thoroughly captivating. Sean P. Sullivan
