TERO Estate and Flying Trout

So I'm at my second tasting of today at the TERO Estate and Flying Trout tasting room right on the corner of 2nd & Rose in the same building as the Marcus Whitman Hotel.

The first was the 2010 TERO red the red blend of Merlot (73%), Cabernet Sauvignon (23%) and Petit Verdot (4%). Overall a nice blend for everyday drinking.

Next the 2010 Flying Trout Malbec from the Gamache Vineyard, overall it was tolerable, given I really don't like Malbec!

On to the 2010 TERO S.T. Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese (42%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (58%) a very nice blend with lots of floral and pepper notes.

Then the 2008 Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon a very nice wine with deep black fruit, leather and a nice dry finish

Finally the 2009 Windrow Vineyard Walla Walla Cabernet Franc. Nice fruit, plenty of black cherry and spice notes a very nice wine.

My favorite of the group was the Walla Walla Cabernet Sauvignon which I bought a bottle and a bottle of the 2009 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Cheere!
