April’s Wine of the Month Is…

April 4, 2016

Redd Brand Wines

 

Tertulia Cellars

 

Our goal at the Pacific Northwest Shop is to highlight amazing local products, artists, and ideas. We know that some of the best wines in the world come from right here in Washington. By purchasing locally-sourced wines, you’re supporting and sustaining jobs, encouraging more local commerce, and getting a superior product.

Redd Brand Wines

 

With that in mind, our shop is going to be featuring a Wine of the Month from a winery or vineyard in our region. The Northwest is home to more than 32 American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), which are recognized by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau as superior growing regions.

 

Our Wine of the Month in April is Redd Brand, a second label of Tertulia Cellars. Tertulia is nestled in the Walla Walla Valley, surrounded by its principle vineyard, Whistling Hills. All three of the Redd Brand wines come from the Columbia Valley AVA, the largest AVA in Washington. Columbia Valley produces a very wide variety of grapes, from Merlot to Riesling, and the unique growing conditions create wines that are more fruit-forward, but still fairly balanced.

Tasting Notes: This medium bodied red has intense aromas of dark cherry, coconut and black olives. As the wine opens, subtle aromatics of sage and sweet tarts develop on the nose. In the mouth, supple acidity and sweet tannins lead to a pleasant finish.

Tasting Notes: This non-vintage Redd Brand Malbec has complex notes of brambly berries, white pepper, and violets with mouth-coating tannins.

Tasting Notes: This non-vintage Redd Brand Tempranillo is medium-bodied, packed full of dried fruit aromatics, dried cherries, figs and dates. Also on the nose are aromas of milk chocolate and orange zest. The mouth is chock-full of firm tannins that lead to a long finish.
