Passing Time Winery

2016 Columbia Valley Red Wine 

 

 

This wine has a unique and interesting nose, due in part to the inclusion of Petit Verdot. Black raspberry, pomegranate, and floral notes are complemented by notes of toasted orange peel, Pekoe tea, cigar box and black olive. The palate has a nice richness, supported by great acidity and length. A wine for medium aging in the cellar, 5-10 years. 

Blend: 63% Cabernet Sauvignon  16% Merlot, 16% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Aging: Aged 21 months in 60% new French oak

94 Points by Jeb Dunnuck 
"This deep purple-colored effort is a brilliant wine in its own right and has a rock star bouquet of blackcurrants, tobacco leaf, underbrush, and chocolate. It’s deep, full-bodied, has a plush, sexy texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s a no brainer to drink any time over the coming 15 years or more."

"Bright medium ruby. Aromas of cassis and licorice are complemented by sexy oak tones and lifted by a violet nuance. Juicy, concentrated and quite primary, with its dark berry flavors complicated by chocolate and a strong licorice note from the Petit Verdot. Finishes with strong, dusty tannins and excellent length, showing less of the drying influence of oak that I found in a bottle I tasted a few months earlier."
