By on May 7, 2013

Washington wineThis brand owned by Precept Wine in Seattle is named for the road that leads to Alder Ridge Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. This delicious and reasonably priced Cab opens with aromas of Hungarian paprika, red currant, cedar and dark chocolate. On the palate, it offers flavors of Marionberry jam, black cherry, black pepper and chocolate. Somewhat assertive tannins on the entry smooth out by midpalate and become fairly modest by the finish.
