K Vintners Roma River Rock Vineyard 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
The 2016 Roma (80/20 Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) has a singular style in its olive, tobacco, baking spice, and chocolate-laced aromas. This carries to a deeply colored wine that has full-bodied richness, beautiful blackcurrant fruit, building richness, and a great finish. It's an exotic wine from this team to drink over the coming 10-15 years.
Good dark red. Aromas of redcurrant, plum, spices and sweet oak. At once savory and sweet, conveying a richer texture than the 2015 version. Flavors of plum, redcurrant, raspberry, mocha and spices could use a bit more definition and grip but the savory finish features sweet tannins. (14.5% alcohol; the Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon components were co-fermented in oak uprights)
