2014 Rhône Blend
Columbia Valley, WA
What we love
Gramercy’s “The Third Man” is a Châteauneuf-inspired Rhône blend, and the 2014 vintage impresses once again. It starts with a nose of vibrant red fruits, floral tones and a mix of sweet and savory spices with blackberry, boysenberry, mission fig, and framboise unfolding on the full palate, along with hints of clove, pepper, black olive, lavender and cedar. Nice weight on the palate and lusciously integrated tannins round out this pleasurable wine.
About this Wine
Greg Harrington, Master Sommelier-turned-winemaker, has truly mastered his craft. The 2014 “Third Man” is made from two vineyards in the Columbia Valley AVA. The Alder Ridge Vineyard contributes power and structure, while the Olsen Vineyard lends elegance and grace to the blend. If you are looking for serious New World Rhône wines, it’s a great time to check out Gramercy and Washington State. 605 cases made. Enjoy!
