Tasting at Cadareta

So I just walked down the street and ended up at Cadaretta Cellars to try some of their wines. So I ended up spending a wonderful hour of tasting some wonderful Bordeaux blends!

In no particular order the 2010 Syrah which sold out at the tasting room, and given the cold harvest there were very few bottles produced. The wines is really nice, with some nice morse of leather and chocolate an just a phenomenally dry finish, so nice!

Then the Windthrow, which is a classic GSM blend of Syrah (53%), Mourvèdre (24%), Grenache (23%). This one has a nice blend of fruit and a bit or tar very nice fruit with a wonderful minerality.

Next up the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (88%), Merlot (11%) and Petit Verdot (1% which has some nice red fruit up front with some great minerality that just makes this a pleasure to sip!

Finally, the 2008 Springboard a blend of Caberbet Sauvignon (78%), Petit Vrtdot (10%), Merlot (8%) and Cabernet Franc (4%). Great black fruit some lovely pepper notes and wild herbs, a spectacular blend!

And a special thank you to Stephanie who was a great host and spectacular help to get me some great dinner and lunch suggestions in Walla Walla!
