The 2016 Mullan Road Columbia Valley Red Wine is a lovely showing in this vintage. Composed of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc which spent 18 months French and American oak barrels, 34% new. It begins with inviting aromas of red and dark currants, which combine with spices, tobacco and forrest herbs. Medium to full-bodied with a wonderful velvety texture and nicely polished tannins framing the red and dark fruits. This is showing beautifully now and should also offer a drinking window that spans close to a decade.
