McKinley Springs 2007 Bombing Range Red (Washington)
It's been just over a year since I cracked the cap of my last bottle of Bombing Range Red (November 2011), enjoyed it then and was planning to enjoy it now ... and I did, a little after the fact ... Upon first pour I thought it a bit too acidic, had the fruit really disappeared in such a short period of time? I'm happy to report, no. It took about a half hour in the glass but that lovely rich fruit managed to show itself and then stayed front and center for the rest of the drinking. Dark berries dominate, a little smokiness with hints of cranberry and plum take a backseat but are most definitely there. Still a very tasty bottle.
