This delightful blend from Rasa Vineyards, from Walla Walla, Washington is one of the best Washington wines that I’ve had. It’s a perfect blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot, Cab Franc, and Petite Verdot. Titled, “In Order to Form a More Perfect Union,” this 2013 blend is aptly named, both for our fast paced political climate, and for the union of these grapes. It is dark, inky garnet, fancy, lace-stocking’d legs in the glass. It’s body is muscular, but round, powerfully striking, but feminine. She is a socialite queen, but not delicate, rather, commanding in presence. She is black cherries, refined plums, with cinnamon, and hints of blackberry juice soaked nectarines. She is an actress of bygone eras on the silver screen. She’ll steal your heart away, from a theater seat, mouth watering, heart racing.
