Nuthatch Cellars 2008 Phinny Hill Vineyard Carmenère (Columbia Valley (WA))

Phinny Hill is in the Horse Heaven Hills AVA of Washington, a prestigious location near Champoux and other high end growers. This Carmenère has 5% Syrah added, but the varietal character dominates, with strong green leaf and herb flavors. The tannins are woody and the fruit fragrant with blackberry and cassis. Good varietal expression is the hallmark of this wine. Paul Gregutt
