Board Track Racer The Chief has been a customer favorite for years, consistently praised for how it delivers way more flavor than you’d expect from the price. So when we learned that our friends at Board Track Racer--AKA the unparalleled team of Mark (Ryan) McNeilly and Mike Macmorran--had picked out a nine-barrel selection for the first ever BTR Reserve, we immediately said “sign us up!”
It’s everything we expected...and more. We’ve been hearing about how special 2018 is a Washington State vintage and like the Gersing, we have proof in the bottle. There’s the boldness we expect, a cascade of dark fruits and dark chocolate. It’s a young wine but we encourage you to drink it soon and stock up. There were only 225 cases made and it’s going to be gone soon. Sourced from the excellent vineyards Quintessence, Klipsun, and Ciel du Cheval.
From the winery: The first Vintage of Reserve BTR Cabernet is a wine we are very excited to offer. Starting with a killer nose of blackberry, black plum, currant, lavender, loam, and baking spice. Then cruising into great palate weight and intensity. Here you will find blackberry, dark chocolate, and graphite that will blow you away. It’s drinking well now and will for the next 10+ years!
We've been working on a special label for Board Track Racer, and it's finally here: introducing the 2018 BTR Reserve. We selected the best barrels and created a Cabernet Sauvignon blend worthy of cellaring, and approachable to drink now. At 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc–this blend from Columbia Valley is bold and smooth, with deep, dark flavor profiles and integrated tannins and acidity.
