William Church 2008 Bishop's Blend Red (Columbia Valley (WA))
This is a quite different mix than previous versions of the Bishop's Blend Red, and in my experience the best ever. Seductive and smoky, it grabs you from the get-go with aromas of sweet fruit and toasty barrel. It's full in front, smooth in the middle and soft in the finish. Just a hint of herb and leaf in the tannins, which may play out well with a few years of cellaring. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
