Tasting notes

A savory nose of dried herbs greets you, while ripe plum and tart cherry are introduced on the palate. In the background, there is anise, mint and bitter dark chocolate aromas. The palate is elegant and bright with great forward and mid-palate volume. The wines balanced acidity lengthens the finish.

"The 2013 Reserve. No 1 Columbia Valley from Gilbert Cellars is made from 50% Syrah, 33% Grenache, and 17% Mourvèdre aged 19 months in 35% new French oak. Deep purple-colored with rich notes of plums and blackberry fruits, it has lots of spicy wood, charred earth, and graphite nuances, full-bodied richness, plenty of fruit and a good finish. It's a big, opulent wine that has surprisingly firm, focused tannin that will need to be watched. I’d lean toward drinking bottles over the coming 6-7 years."
