Tsillan Cellars 2006 Bellissima Rossa Red (Columbia Valley (WA))

The newest release of Bellissima Rossa—a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc—is just a bit brighter, more spicy and peppery than the previous vintage. It's built upon bright, racy fruit, and uses the barrels moderately. The length seems a bit better than the 2005, but mostly it's the butterscotchy barrel flavors that linger sensuously in the back of the throat. Paul Gregutt
