Winemaker Richard Batchelor loves Joe Hattrup’s vineyards in the Rattlesnake Hills district of the Yakima Valley, and this Tempranillo from Sugarloaf further reveals what a special partnership this has become. Aromas of strawberry, Bing cherry, caramel and vanilla lead to flavors of bright red fruit, including raspberry, pomegranate and cranberry. It’s all backed by rich tannins that give way to a plush, lengthy finish. (272 cases; 14.2 alc.)
