2018 :Nota Bene Dineen Vineyard Red Blend : Yakima Valley
With regular access to Merlot from Dineen Vineyard, we continue to produce a Bordeaux-style blend. Vineyard owner Pat Dineen came through and delivered just enough to provide this exciting vineyard-designated blend. The Cab and Cab Franc drive the flavor profile with the Merlot adding mid-palate complexity. This is a fine, full-flavored blend from Dineen to enjoy now or with time in a proper cellar.
