Occam’s Razor Red Blend, Columbia Valley, WA; 2018
$62 with a 30% off out the door at $43.40
The 2018 Occam’s Razor, like its predecessors, offers an exceptional quality to price ratio. This wine has a fantastic bouquet of blackberry, cassis, framboise, with nuances of spice, leather, vanilla, and espresso. The full-bodied palate has suave tannins with well-delineated notes of blackberry, huckleberry, cassis, black cherry, vanilla, cigar tobacco, dark chocolate, cedar, and spice. The wine shows a deft balance between the fruit extract, refreshing acidity, and moderately grippy tannins. The wine finishes with lovely notes of cassis, black cherry, framboise, and earth. This is a compelling beverage at a modest price point. Drinks well now but will improve over the next 5-8 years.
