Matthews Winery

"Blackboard"
Red Blend 

 2017
Columbia Valley, Washington State

55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec, 1% Syrah

With school, virtual, homed or otherwise, back in session we knew when we tasted it that educators of all kinds needed this bottle!

Crafted from several vineyards across three AVAs in Washington State: Columbia Valley, Red Mountain, and Walla Walla Valley. This red wine is a combination of many common Bordeaux varietals, and includes a splash of Syrah for complexity. The name Blackboard celebrates the use of chalk in the winery, which is used for marking everything from wine barrels, winery walls to fermentation tanks. A portion of Blackboard proceeds will be used to support local, national, and international educational charities.

“Very pretty plums and cherries with some orange-peel and chocolate character. Medium to full body, round yet fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.”


Our thoughts on this wine.....

Very small production, with beautiful notes of strawberry, pureed raspberry, currants, plum jam and spice. Hints of vanilla bean, macerated berries and cocoa powder carry the palate. Medium to full-bodied this wine over performs its price point.
