2015 Spring Valley Vineyard Uriah

Washington | Bordeaux Red Blend
"We’ve been tasting Uriah, Spring Valley’s cabernet franc–dominant blend, since my first issue, in December 2000. Eighteen vintages later, it remains a product of place, of the graceful wind-shaped Palouse Hills in the northeast corner of Walla Walla: It’s generous in its flavors of plum and violet, with hints of balsamic and herbs alongside dusty minerality; for brisket."

"The 2015 Red Wine Uriah checks in as 43% Cabernet Franc, 38% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec that spent 18 months in 40% new oak. Almost always one of my favorites in the lineup, the 2015 reveals a deep purple color as well as a classy bouquet of spiced red fruits, cedar, and dried herbs. It's relatively restrained yet has good mid-palate depth, ripe tannins, and terrific balance. Give it another 2-3 years and it should keep nicely for 10-12.
