Another Great Washington State Wine

Last night we had pasta with red sauce and decided to complement it with syrah. I found a bottle of Three Rivers Winery from Walla Walla Valley Washington Ahler Vineyard, 2003. We purchased this at Randolph wines last year on a visit to Chicago and I put it in the cellar and forgot about it. What a treat. This is a lush velvety wine with dusty plum and currant notes. It has a finish that last seemingly for several minutes. There is perfect balance between acids and tannin. You can check out the web site (www.3riverswinery.com) , where they have info on their other wines, all of which are single vineyard and probably just as spectacular. This is another example of fantastic wines from Washington State.
