The Producer: Started in 2009 by brothers Ryan and Eric Harms, Christopher Michael focuses on winemaking that represents Washington's unique terroir. Their wines are vibrant, lush and round and are buy-now-drink-now.
The Why:This robust red is full of bright red fruits. The palate opens with ripe red berries and finishes with fresh cut strawberry. Spending its time in neutral oak, this wine has a touch of vanilla and wood on the finish.
