I am very proud to introduce the second of our Dedication Series. My passion is making great blended wines inspired by the classical blends of Europe. Never wanting to stand still, I am offering up a new series of blended wines outside of the box (but still inside the bottle). Each wine is unique in its blend and to whom it is dedicated. For our second Dedication wine, we bring you, Takahashi. A Malbec based Bordeaux blend dedicated to Robert Takahashi our assistant winemaker, who has contributed greatly to Brian Carter Cellars as well as the wines of Washington.
This wine was blended by Robert who has a particular fondness for the Malbec variety. Impenetrably dark in color, the wine has classic and generous varietal Malbec aromas of blueberries and damson plums. On the palate, the wine’s fruit expands across the palate with supple tannins and classic Washington State balanced acidity. Enjoy with a rib-eye steak smothered in sautéed mushrooms with fresh corn and a Caesar salad.
