I got an email the other day advertising Fidelitas’ Canyons Malbec. I had to head in for a tasting!
2019 Red Mountain Semillon – Honeysuckle and creamy. Just a hint of acidic fruit on the finish.
2019 Optu White Blend – Gourgous and perfect for a hot day. I would have opened the tasting with it if I could have. Light floral nose. Beautifully fruity mid palate, with a hint of strawberry and peaches. Delicate finish. Outstanding stuff.
2017 Red Mountain Merlot – A standard Big Red Merlot from Washington. Lovely, but not what I was looking for that day.
2017 Optu Red Mountain Red Blend – Dark. Minerals and chocolate. A hint of plum on the finish. I felt a bit silly sitting outside on an 85 degree day in Woodinville drinking it. This felt like a good November evening wine.
2017 The Canyons Malbec – This was what I came to try. Nose was all dark fruit and baking spices. Palate was blackberries and honey. Just enough tannins to take notice. Long long long finish.
