Echolands Winery was created in 2018 by Brad Bergman and Doug Frost, two Kansas City residents who believed in the Walla Walla Valley AVA’s ability to offer a distinct style of wine, one that would benefit from aging. Paired with Taylor Oswald, an eleven-year veteran of Walla Walla winemaking, the three have partnered to craft responsibly produced wines that reflect the potential for elegant and balanced wines from this singular place.
The 2019 ‘Rubrum’ is a left bank inspired blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon with 37% Merlot and smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Black raspberry and black tea notes combine with shades of cloves and wet gravel on the nose. The palate shows a soft texture with medium-bodied dark fruit flavors with shades of chocolate and pipe tobacco. Delicious to consume now, this will live on for at least another decade. Drink 2022-2035.
