Matthews 2017 Blackboard Red
The 2017 Blackboard Red Wine was crafted from several vineyards across three AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested in the early fall mornings. Upon arriving at the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and fermented in a combination of concrete and stainless steel tanks. It was then moved to custom French oak barrels (9% new and 91% once-used) for 17 months of cellaring with over 40 individual evaluations by our winemaking team. 3,625 cases were bottled.
"Very pretty plums and cherries with some orange-peel and chocolate character. Medium to full body, round yet fine tannins and a flavorful finish. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Syrah and 1% Malbec. Drink now." 92 PTS - James Suckling
