Naches Heights Vineyard 2013 Grenache, Yakima Valley, $30

By on June 1, 2016

naches grenacheNaches Heights vintner Phil Cline stayed close to home in finding the grapes for his Grenache, tapping Two Coyote Vineyard he works with in the Yakima Valley. The result is an aromatic Rhône-influenced red wine that displays pomegranate, blackberry and spice in the glass, then juicy pomegranate, blackberry and blueberry flavors in the mouth. Its lingering finish displays graphite-like minerality and well-managed tannins. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
