2005 Miscela : Washington State
True to the spirit of this wine...Miscela is Italian for “blend”...we see how grapes from many different vineyards can come together to make a satisfying Bordeaux blend. More new world in style than our Abbinare blend of a similar concept, it is Cabernet heavy yet followed closely by lots of Merlot. Enjoy the big hearty cherry/berry flavors that have come together make this wine so much fun to drink. We call it Washington State in a glass....
