2017 Carménère - Cabernet Franc, Red Mountain WashingtonRadix Winery
Carménère done right!
Alluring aromas of red plums, crushed raspberries, vanilla bean, baking chocolate, ground coffee, dried herbs and roasted poblano pepper. The medium to full bodied palate is dominated by macerated red fruits and white peppercorn while an iron component leads to light grip on the finish.
