Tasting notes

"A beautiful ruby color in the glass with aromas of black plum, red currant, and red apple skin. The 2020 Matthews Horse Heaven Hilld Cuvée elicits flavors of pomegranate, espresso, Bing cherry, bilberry and sassafras with fresh acidity, medium body and chalky tannins. The long, layered finish shows textural tannins, earth and roasted red pepper." - Bryan Otis, Proprietor

"The 2020 'Horse Heaven Hills Cuvee' comes from the Champoux and Wallula Gap vineyards, as this was stored for 22 months in 52% new French oak before bottling.  Mostly Merlot (40%) and Malbec (24%), this delivers Asian spice with Earl Grey tea, blackberry compote and shades of pencil lead on the nose.  The palate is fresh and soft, with a very smooth texture. Showing good brightness and weight, this is already nicely evolved.  Enjoy now and over the next ten years." -93 points, Owen Bargreen
