This unique five grape blend from Horse Heaven Hills, Washington consists of 50% Zinfandel, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. I have to say that most of the time I see a blend that has more than three grapes in it, especially when the varieties used in the blend don’t coincide with one another and are from all over the map, I get extremely weary. Most of the time, with “Most” being the keyword here.
This generous, unconventional blend has a heavenly bouquet of walnut, mushroom, kirsh and hearty earth with a marvelous mouthfeel and sleek, smooth tannin, while bursting with offerings of lilacs, fresh herbs, meat, licorice and pleasantly tart dark fruit. Old World Winemaking romances Washington State. An outstanding wine and Domaine Pouillon is at the top of my list for some of my favorite new wines! Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
