Chandler Reach 2006 Corella

Chandler Reach Vineyards is located in Benton City, WA overlooking Red Mountain. Their 42 acre of estate vineyard is located is one of the warmest areas in the state. This no doubt has contributed to the medals and acclaim Chandler Reach has achieved with their wines.

The 2006 Corella is a Super Tuscan blend of 70% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Merlot. On the nose it was very clean with vanilla notes and a slight earth hit. Medium bodied and garnet in color. I tasted cherries and hints of smoke with a slight acidity and earthiness on the finish. This wine was an easy drinker on it's own, but it paired great with our dinner of beet salad with chevre & pistachios and chicken parmesan.
