Matthews 2016 Blackboard Red (Columbia Valley (WA))
This wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 7% Syrah, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec. Blue-fruit aromas are at the fore along with notes of green pepper and green herb. The concentration is quite light, not able to deliver. Sean P. Sullivan

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
