Guardian Cellars 2017 Chalk Line Red Blend
Guardian's version of THE Washington blend is 55% Cabernet, 26% Merlot, 18% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot. Right from the beginning this wine exudes ripe wild blackberry and plum jam. These dark fruit notes are soon joined by the sweet notes of vanilla latte and roasted coffee along with some black pepper spice. The mouth-feel is dense, lengthy and generous. Although good now, this vintage is an age-worthy wine.
