If Bordeaux has taught us one thing, it’s that there is something special in the way Cabernet and Merlot combine with Petit Verdot into something greater than the sum of its parts. And there’s also something special about the way each of these varieties expresses itself on Red Mountain, holding onto their European sense of herbs, freshness and minerality, while bringing a power and density that’s completely Washington. Harmonious, balanced, each adding a unique personality, these varieties Coalesce into a wine that’s Pure Red Mountain.
The 2016 Coalesce is a vibrant and dark purple in the glass. It has a classic bouquet of plums, fresh blackberry, pencil lead, cedary spice and dried tobacco. Full-bodied, plush and powerful, the palate has freshness and structure with ample concentration to the dark fruit. The long, building finish is savory with dried herbs and plenty of mouthwatering fruit.
