Soos Creek "Sundance" Columbia Valley Red Wine 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Wild berries, spice, and cocoa on the nose

Full bodied and firm and on the palate

More of the same on the finish


When I flew to Seattle two weeks ago to climb Mt. Rainier, I had the chance to sample a number of Washington state wines that I just don't see near me in the Northeast. This wine from Soos Creek is at the lower end of their price spectrum, costing $22. It's a blend of primarily Merlot with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. While not as voluptuous as other wines from Soos Creek, it delivers a lot of flavor on a firm backbone. Nice wine!

And yes, I made it to the summit of Mt. Rainier. Raise a glass!
