Saviah Cellars - Distinctive Wines from the Walla Walla Valley

A classic Une Vallée, showing blackberry and blue fruits, vanilla, and baking spice on the nose. Delicious black and blue fruits, spice, licorice, and floral notes come through on the palate. Full-bodied, artfully balanced acidity with silky smooth tannins and a long pleasing finish. Well-balanced, good complexity and will get even better with some age.
