Telaya Wine Co. 2014 Turas Red Wine, Snake River Valley, $32

telaya-wine-turas-2014-bottleOne of the Idaho wine industry’s rising stars relies on Syrah grown in the Snake River Valley for its flagship wine, a blend that includes Merlot (19%), Malbec (19%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%). The 20 months in French barrels creates aromas of roasted coffee beans and Weetabix with grilled strawberries and smoked charcuterie. There’s less oak influence on the pleasing palate that offers dark blueberry and Marionberry flavors. Sandy tannins and baking spices pave the way for a delicious cherry pie finish. Look for their award-winning lineup along the banks of the Boise River on the popular Greenbelt – accessible by bicycle, runners and strollers.
