Fall Line Exhibition Yakima Valley 2009 Red Wine (46% Cabernet Franc, 34% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Temparnillo) $24.00 (Bought at the Dover Wine co.), 90 points, is very dry with silky tannin and a complex list of tasting notes.
The Color is another in the deep ruby, almost opaque, transparent ring category.
The aroma is a very interesting and pleasant array that translates nicely onto the palate, with blueberry, earth, java, alcohol (14.5%), and dry cocoa, but the finish adds a bit of plum and spice.
I found the Fall Line Red Wine to be quite delicious, but I think it will be too dry for many. However my guess (I drank this without food) is that it will be very food-friendly.
