About Mullan Road 2014 Red Blend, Cakebread, Columbia Valley

Mullan Road Cellars is a project led by Dennis Cakebread of Cakebread Cellars to produce first class wines from the unique microclimates of Washington State. Drawn by the high quality of wines coming out of the Walla Walla, Dennis and winemaker Aryn Morell worked with the famed Seven Hills Vineyard on the southern edge of the Walla Walla Valley appellation as well as vineyards in the soon-to-be-recognized Royal Slope appellation to craft this powerful yet elegant Bordeaux-style Red Blend 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. The wine was fermented in a mix of concrete tanks and stainless steel, and aged 17 months in 40% new French and American oak. It received 91 points from Vinous who said "Medium red-ruby. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, licorice, violet, smoky oak and a whiff of tomato sauce that quickly blew off. Very rich, thick and savory but shows lovely acidity for the vintage. Nicely savory, juicy and penetrating, finishing with plenty of dusty tannins to support aging." and it was just awarded the Chairman's Trophy in The Ultimate Wine Competition. They scored it "96 points and said "Although a blend, the wine shows plenty of Cabernets wild berry and black pepper character on its effusive nose. When tasted, more flavors of dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and baked plum become apparent. Intense on its own and sublime with beef from the grill."
