89pointsMercer 2016 Cavalie Reserve Red (Horse Heaven Hills)

Merlot makes up just over half of this wine, with the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Brooding aromas of raspberry, cherry candy, cocoa and herb lead to light, elegant, center-focused fruit flavors, which broaden with time open. It shows a pretty sense of deftness and sophistication, with a pleasing tannic structure. Fresh herb notes linger on the finish. Sean P. Sullivan
