TN: 2013 Spring Valley Vineyard Frederick

  • 2013 Spring Valley Vineyard Frederick - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley (2/14/2019)
    Day 1: Pop and pour. Perfect serving temperature as it was pulled from the passive cellar. Something I always need to remind others and myself when drinking red wine. Not the most balanced effort featuring earth, leather, subtle fruits and spices. Shorter finish and just not that interesting. I am thankful I spent only $27 for this wine. Maybe more promise on day 2 or 3. 85 points
    Day 2: Better and more open for business. Perfume, floral, spices, chocolate, dark fruits and tobacco. Classic case of a wine that is not ready to drink but most would discard it. Day 2 shows a lot of potential and this could be a blockbuster Washington State Bordeaux Blend. 90+ points
    Day 3: Dust, chocolate, spice, dark fruits and floral notes. Medium plus finish and balanced. 90 points
    Recommendation: Hold until 2021 and beyond. (90 pts.)
