Charles & Charles Post NO. 35 Blend 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Charles & Charles|
This wine is a 60-40 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Aromas of olive, smoke, mesquite, huckleberry and black raspberry are followed by plump, smoky blue- and red-fruit flavors, with the tannins giving a firm squeeze. They need some time to settle in, but there's plenty of enjoyment to be had.
There's a lot to like in this wine's plum, tar, orange rind and raspberry aromas. The palate has a bright freshness, with enough tannic heft to give drinking pleasure over the next few years. It's an enjoyable mouthful of a wine. Give it a short decant.
