Mullan Road Cellars is a journey into Washington winemaking led by Dennis Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars. Dennis and veteran winemaker Aryn Morell worked with the famed Seven Hills Vineyard as well as vineyards in the new Royal Slope appellation to craft this powerful yet elegant Bordeaux-style Red Blend.
This highly rated red from Washington state is balanced, elegant, layered, concentrated, and medium bodied, with seamless texture and fine tannins. The smooth palate rolls out flavors of cherry, blackberry, currant, black tea, light oak, sage, licorice, chestnuts, and baking spices with bitter dark chocolate and plum flavors arriving on the long finish. Another winner with roast pork.
