Washington State interests me more and more as a wine region, and I wish I saw more wine from that region on the shelves of my local wine shops. I expect that over time I’ll see more of it showing up in my mid-western locale.
I’ve previously reviewed the Bridgman Chardonnay, and I need to note again the potential perceived conflict of interest with this review as I have a business relationship with an online retailer from whom I may get paid if you happen to click the link at the end of this article and buy this wine. Nonetheless, I always strive to give my impartial opinion for any review I do… and this is no exception.
Cedar dominates the nose, but under it you’ll also find some cherry, black currant and smoky aromas. Give this wine some time to open up and it becomes much more interesting. There’s quite a bit of fruit on the palate, with dried cherries and currants. There’s a touch of coffee on the finish. The tannins are moderate, but not quite silky.
It’s a good wine at a reasonable price.
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
