Spring Valley Uriah 2013
|Appellation||Walla Walla Valley|
Wine SpectatorBroad and expressive, playing red plum, black cherry and peppery spice flavors against lightly prickly tannins, coming together on the long and generous finish. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is a blend of Merlot (45%), Cabernet Franc (34%), Petit Verdot (8%), Malbec (8%) and Cabernet Sauvignon. Brooding aromas of green herbs, flowers and cherry lead to a ripe full-flavored palate that shows a fine sense of balance.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Uriah is another wine that's good, yet comes in behind other recent vintages. Made from 45% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, this medium-bodied, charming, open knit and nicely textured 2013 has moderate mid-palate depth, notes of currants, cherries, savory spice and dried herbs, ripe tannin, and a good finish.
