11. Walla Walla Vintners 2013 Sangiovese, Columbia Valley, $25

Walla Walla Vintners Sangiovese labelWalla Walla Vintners used Columbia Valley fruit to make this stunning example of Sangiovese from the 2013 vintage, crafting another in a long line of fine reds. Just-right oak offers a bit of spice in the nose to augment a whiff of strawberry and cranberry. In the mouth, cranberry, loganberry and brambly tannins promise versatility. This example calls for medium-rare duck breast with sautéed mushrooms.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 1,007 cases

Alcohol: 14.2%
