Knight Hill Winery 2010 Mourvèdre, Wahluke Slope, $24

By on June 7, 2013

Washington wineOwners Anne and Terry Harrison use the services of winemaker Anke Wildman to produce some of the best wines coming out of the Zillah area of the Yakima Valley. The grapes for this wine were sourced from StoneTree Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope (which, not coincidentally, is owned and operated by Anke’s husband, Tedd Wildman). This luscious Mourvèdre offers aromas of thyme, raspberry jam, lime and a Hostess cherry pie. Beautiful spice and black tea greet the palate, along with balanced flavors of raspberry, strawberry-rhubarb compote, milk chocolate and roasted marshmallow. It is so good from beginning to end, all backed with mild tannins.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 111 cases

Alcohol: 14.3%
