2007 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 style blend. More new world in style than our Abbinare blend of a similar concept. In a break from past blends we’ve packed the Miscela with two big Cabs; the Kiona is sourced from 30 year old vines on Red Mountain. This wine is a touch of the exotic, lots of fun to drink. We call it Washington State in a glass…
