Brimstone Red Blend Columbia Valley 2007

This was the first red brought out from the Society for American Wines Phelp’s Creek tasting featuring the wines of Oregon and Portland. The wine is a blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cab Sauv. It is dark in color, with a pronoucned nose of syrah, slightly sweet. On the mid pallet this is a pretty big wine, medium to full bodied. Some nice cassis flavors, for me it almost resembled a cab franc in some ways. Some edgy tannins, but not in a bad or over the top way. The finish is medium in length with some residual sweetness left in the mouth and some tannins. This is a fairly smooth wine. I would give it an 89 or so. Not available in LCBO but $16.50 at the winery. For the price not a bad wine at all!
