2010 Guild Winemakers Red Wine Columbia Valley Lot #6

Plenty of complexity built into Lot #6 Red as the 2010 vintage was cool and protracted. A blend of classic Southern Rhone varietals, from the Pacific Northwest, this wine shows flavors of juicy cherry fruit and dark berries, punctuated with aromas of black pepper and barrel spice. Soft acids are supported by plush tannins, balancing length with structure. Will shine at a picnic or barbecue, but also pairs well with the cured meats on your holiday table.
