Wind Rose Cellars 2014 Hunter’s Red, Yakima Valley, $22

By on August 13, 2016

wind-rose-cellars-hunters-red-2014-bottleOlympic Peninsula vintner David Volmut could label this proprietary blend from Lonesome Spring Rnach as Grenache (90%), but he chooses to build a bit more body by including Cabernet Sauvignon to the mix. He keeps the focus on the fruit from start to finish with fun aromas of cherry juice, strawberry and milk chocolate with a pinch of celery leaf. The structure is bright with more cherries, strawberry and raspberry, making for an unpretentious and easy drinking red that’s only available at his tasting room in Sequim. Suggested pairings include grilled meats and hard cheeses.
