Darby 'Purple Haze' Red Blend
With only 800 cases produced, and a cult-like following, this hidden gem blew us away. The Darby Purple Haze is a rich selection made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Sirah. Grapes for the wine are sourced from four of Columbia Valley’s best subregions: Yakima Valley, Horse Heaven Hills, Wahluke Slope, and Red Mountain. With rich dark fruit flavors, soft tannins, and a silky-smooth finish, this wine is truly delectable!
Bold aromas of dark currant, cherry, and plum lead into hints of smoke, caramel, and cedar. Flavors of blackberry, plum, and cassis are complemented by notes of earth that add depth. The palate is rich, with a silky-smooth texture and soft tannins. 18 months of oak aging softens the wine and provides a generous finish.
