Christopher Michael Washington Red Blend 2021
The base of this blend is Merlot which lends fresh red and blue fruit to the aromatics and brings a lushness to the palate. The Cabernet Sauvignon adds layers of cassis and currant while the Syrah ties it all together. There's a touch of Tannat that provides the structural framework. It was aged on 25% new French oak which plays a nice supporting role in the background of this wine from the nose through the palate.
