2017 Métis Red Blend

2017 Métis Red Blend

A complex red blend of the finest varietals from the Walla Walla Valley, this bottling celebrates the Métis heritage of Founder Jim Bernau's fourth great grandparents Catherine "Kitty" Umfreville Pambrun who worked with her husband Pierre Chrysologue Pambrun to lead Fort Nez Perce in Walla Walla, ushering in a time of peace to the trading post and Columbia Basin.

On the Nose: The wine opens with a nose of plum, currant, blueberry, leather, tobacco and smokiness.

On the Palate: Velvety and juicy with dark cherry, cocoa, anise and dried herbs flavors filling out the frame with subtle tannins and a lingering finish.

Food Pairings: Enjoy with rich red meat dishes including braised short ribs, filet mignon, meatball sliders with red Wine onion jam, grilled flatbread with wild mushrooms and bittersweet chocolate mousse.

Peak Drinkability:
2020 - 2026.
