Tasting Notes

The 2017 vintage was an extraordinary year for Washington wine. Merlot was particularly fond of the growing conditions, though all the red varietals in this wine display a fresh, juicy profile. The Jack Red Wine shows enticing aromas of red current, black cherries, plum and blackberries, baking spice, vanilla and marmalade.  The flavors showcase bright, perfectly ripe red and black fruit that lead to a long silky, smooth finish.  Pour a glass and enjoy!
