Pour’n Star at Dusted Valley in Woodinville, WA.
Malbec (60%), Petit Verdot (20%), Cab Franc (20%) join forces here for a fun, satisfying romp. Fleshy notes on the nose blend with graphite/wet stone, hints of strawberry and bell peppers. On the palette blackberry, baking spices, tobacco and black plum are the most prominent flavors. Yum! — a year ago
Still pretty tight, essence of blackberries, cedar, vanilla and and a pleasing vegetal note (think fresh ancho chilies just plucked from the plant) on the nose. On the palette the dark berry flavors combine with hefty, chalky tannins and sweetness from the vanilla combine for a very nice treat. ❤️ — a year ago
Black cherry, coco, and coffee notes on the nose are seductive and indicative of the relative youth of this vintage. On the sip, all those flavors come through, especially the black cherry. In addition some black plum, tobacco and vanilla come through. Yum! — a year ago
Dusty roses, chocolate truffle, notes of vanilla, cola, white pepper and tobacco on the nose. 75/25 cab sauv/cab franc. On the palette, this wine is barely getting into its peak at this point (give it 2-5 more years for optimal experience); cola and cherry notes come on strong with tobacco lingering into a slow fade with notes of cranberry, red plum, and fig.
