2016 Imaginarium Red Wine by Forgeron Cellars

COLUMBIA VALLEY

THE 2016 GROWING SEASON STARTED FAST AND FURIOUS WITH AN EARLY BUD BREAK AND WE EXPECTED A REPEAT OF 2015, WHICH WAS THE WARMEST VINTAGE ON RECORD FOR WASHINGTON STATE. THANKFULLY, TEMPERATURES DROPPED IN EARLY JUNE AND THROUGH THE REST OF THE SUMMER. THE RESULT WAS A PRETTY MUCH AVERAGE VINTAGE, WITH AMPLE HANGING TIME FOR OUR FRUIT. ACR OSS THE BOARD, WE ARE THRILLED WITH THE QUALITY OF OUR 2016 WINES, WITH THE COMMON THREAD BEING BALANCE, STRUCTURE AND MODERATION. OUR RED BLEND SHOWS OUR ARTISTIC-SIDE IN MAKING A UNIQUE BLEND OF VARIETALS THAT WOULDN’ T USUALLY BE BLENDED TOGETHER. IN FACT, BARRELS FROM SOME OF OUR VERY BEST LOTS FOUND THEIR WAY INTO THIS FUNKY CUVEE. A GREAT REPRESENTATION OF THE VINTAGE, THE BODY OF THIS WINE IS MEDIUM IN WEIGHT AND SILKY IN TEXTURE.
