Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Chester-Kidder Red Blend

Chester-Kidder Red Blend 2007

Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesLove the restrained tobacco, cedar, peppery, cassis jam, vanilla nose flecked with coffee, black olive, savoury, carrot top and celery salt. The attack is full and smooth on the palate with fine tannins and good acidity and rich vanilla, coffee, pepper, tobacco, blackberry jam/cassis flavours with bits of menthol, meat, leather and curry. The finish is long, warm and full with some youthful tannin yet to shed. Give this another three to five years in bottle or serve now with roasted meat. Best yet from winemaker Gilles Nicault.Tasted: 09 September 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 50.00 speculative listing - Mark Anthony Brands AB 45.00 fine wine shops ON 80.00 Classics Catalogue US 42.00 estimated retail QC 47.00 Producer: Long Shadows VintnersDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
