2006 Nebbiolo di Klipsun, Klipsun Vineyard
Red Mountain

No one has yet dubbed Red Mountain "the Piedmonte of Washington," but . . .Piero Antinori did go in on the Col Solare project, just up the hill from Klipsun. Hmmmmm. So Paul Beveridge crafted this tasty Nebbiolo to tempt our palates and accompany Italian cuisine. Aromas of red fruits and floral perfume with notes of toasty oak lead to a palate rich with earthy cherry flavors and a clean, food friendly finish.
