Reasons Wine 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $35

By on April 7, 2017

Oregon State grad Ned Morris, whose résumé includes Abeja, áMaurice, Basel Cellars, Canoe Ridge and Double Canyon, recently launched his online-only Reasons Wine brand in his longtime home of Walla Walla. He compiled his debut bottling by pulling from four growing regions, but primarily from the Walla Walla Valley. It exudes dark purple tones of black currant and plum with vanilla and milk chocolate. There’s pleasing grip to the rounded structure of medium tannins and long trail of blueberry juice. The Australian-trained sommelier suggests serving it with Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs.
