Wines for February 2020:Mullan Road, Cellars by Cakebread, Walla Walla, Washington, Cabernet based red blend, 2015
andChapoutier Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem, Cotes de Roussillon Villages Latour de France, France, Syrah 2015

Two examples have been chosen for the month of February that show:

  1. One Classic grape, Syrah and an interesting Red Blend.
  2. These wines are from under the radar regions and so offer great quality and value for money.
  3. However both are produced by very famous families, Cakebread of Napa fame and Chapoutier of Rhone fame. These are families that are and have been at the top of their region for over thirty years.
  4.  I am a great fan of WA red blends as they offer body, depth, varietally correct fruit flavors and concentration. The Roussillon region is in Catalonian part of France just north of the Spanish border. The lovely long sunny days and iron rich soils produce beautifully rich, rounded and complex wines.

Enjoy!

Description

Mullan Road, Cellars by Cakebread, Walla Walla, Washington, Cabernet based red blend, 2015

Wine Advocate 94/00: The 2015 Columbia Valley Red Wine opens in the glass with aromas of cassis, plums, sweet spices and burning embers. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with lovely concentration, an abundance of fine-grained tannins and a pure, penetrating finish. A blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc. 3,570 cases of this excellent red were produced.

Chapoutier Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem, Cotes de Roussillon Villages Latour de France, France, Syrah 2015
Wine Advocate 94/00: One of the more polished, sexy examples of the cuvee, aged all in concrete tanks. It boasts killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, pepper and licorice, with just a hint of chocolate appearing with time in the glass. This medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully textured red is an incredible value and will be impossible to resist over the coming 4-5 years, and I’m sure it will keep even longer.
