Komodo Dragon Cellars Colombia Valley Red Blend 2014, Washington State 

My Rating 83 Points.   

Price $18

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

On the nose, plums, sweet raspberries, smoke, oak, vanilla, licorice, barnyard, vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, bell pepper, earth, forest floor, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, black tea, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins, bitter raspberries and vegetables.

A nice everyday Red wine from Washington State. Earthy, with lots of green notes, especially on the nose. A bit unbalanced with a watery mouthfeel, and some complexity.

Needs about 30 minutes to open up.

Paired nicely with a charcuterie board and fruits.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
