  • 2014 Davenport Cellars R.H.D. - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley (2/4/2020)
    Day 1: Cigar, plum, subtle spices, dust and minerals. Elegant overall and medium finish. There is some fruit ready to emerge but might need some time to do so. Score withheld on day 1.
    Day 2: More open for business. Menthol, cherry, plum, spices, minerals and fragrant floral notes. Good acidity and medium finish. This is enjoyable but lacks concentration on the finish. 88 points
    Day 3: Serendipity. I left the cork off from day 2 to 3 which I never do when I do 3 Day Wine Reviews. This worked and give much promise to this wine. This is a long term ager. Featuring sour cherry, plum, spice, minerals, floral and tobacco. Very complex wine overall and much better than day 1 and 2. 91-93 points
    Recommendation: HOLD! Drink this wine from 2025 to 2030. (91 pts.)
