LA RATA Red Wine, Walla Walla Valley 2015

The 2015 'La Rata' Red Wine is a blend of 54% Grenache with 26% Cabernet and 10% Syrah. Inspired by the top wines of Priorat, Elizabeth Bourcier decided to make a small tank of co-fermented Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon and has been a remarkable success. This year release displays a slightly darker color than previous vintages, likely due to the addition of the Syrah. The nose takes on stunning aromatics with barn floor, red cherry candy, guava purée, teaberry, black truffle oil and umami. Incredibly perfumed, the intoxicating bouquet continues to brings you back to the glass for more. The texture to this wine entices and beautifully envelops the palate. The savory and saline quality to this wine is quite striking, showing charcuterie with red cherries, cranberries, guava, white truffle and umami flavors. A downright stunner, this gorgeous wine will cellar well over the next decade, but is nearly impossible to resist right now.
