Another fabulous bottle from the winemaker at Dunham. (Just realized that I didn’t blog about the last one drank earlier this month. Oops!)
This blend – almost a traditional bordeaux blend – combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. Yes, Syrah. A beautiful red color filled my glass. Lots of fruity flavors filled my nose. Then layered on the smokiness that blended well with dinner. And, that included pork chops, mashed potatoes and kale.
The winemaker says:
2 0 0 7 T R U T I N A | Reminiscent of all the best memories under the Big Top…lush cherry cola and caramel apples greet you at the door, and just inside, the flower girl peddles violets along with fresh vanilla bean and mocha shakes! Truly one of Washington State’s best vintages to date, and the first dual effort of Dan Wampfler and Eric Dunham…step right up!
