Otis Kenyon Matchless Red
|Region||United States, Washington, Walla Walla Valley|
This unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot jumps out at you with a wildness that can only be attributed to the Rhone and Bordeaux varietals fighting it out for dominance while in the bottle.After a year of age, some semblance of peace has emerged and we are left with a soft but complex wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon hits you with tons of red hot cinnamon and cigar box.The Syrah adds spice, blackberry and lilac. The Merlot finishes you off with cherry, chocolate and a smoothness that makes you understand who won the battle. You can enjoy each component of this Jekyll and Hyde wine individually, or wait a while for a glass to open up, inte- grate and behave.
