Barnard Griffin Rob's Red Blend
|Availability:||In stock (9)|
Rob and his wife, Deborah Barnard, established Barnard Griffin Winery in 1983 with a small truckload of borrowed fruit and a rented cellar. It has now grown to become one of Washington’s most enduring and award-winning wineries. Rob and Deborah built the winery’s permanent home in Richland, Washington in 1996. The Barnard Griffin campus houses their production facility, tasting room, full service restaurant and fused glass art studio.
This wine is made from a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, plus small amounts of Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. A full bodied and richly flavoured cuvée, this is the quintessential style of the Columbia Valley. Dark purple red in the glass, it has powerful and sweet aromas of blackberries, hazelnut, vanilla cream, and coffee. The full bodied palate delivers muscular blueberry compote and black cherry flavours that are wrapped in a robe of rich and chocolatey tannins. The finish is round with a dusting of baking spice.
