WBOTD: Dunham Cellars Trutina 2013 Washington Red Blend is the bomb!
91RP | Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate | Up with the best vintages of this cuvee to date, the Dunham Cellars Trutina 2013 (42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 12% Malbec, and the rest Petit Verdot and Syrah) offers a charming, ready to go, upfront style as well as notes of currants, chocolate, dried spices and bouquet garni. Drink this medium to full-bodied, ripe and nicely balanced 2013 over the coming 7-8 years.
Winemaker Notes | A warmer vintage in 2013 allowed for the early development of rich flavors while cool harvest nights provided balanced acidity. The 2013 Trutina opens with aromas of ripe blackberry and dark cherry. Supple tannins woven into layers of rich cocoa powder delivers a lengthy finish of bright red fruit.
