Komodo Dragon Cellars Colombia Valley Red Blend 2014, Washington State 

My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $17.  


Beautiful ruby in color with a wide purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, plums, strawberries, wood, licorice, earth, eucalyptus, metals, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, vegetables, spices, mint and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, oak, coffee, dark chocolates, tobacco, earth, black pepper and black tea.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins, spices and tangy cranberries.

A enjoyable red blend from Washington State with a soft mouthfeel. Easy drinking with nice complexity and balance. Good food wine or just to sip on by the porch.

I had it a few months ago, but this time it was much better. Maybe it was me, maybe it was the company, or it might just have been the food….

I paired it with light appetizers.

12.5% alcohol by volume.
