Wine Review: This bright red blend from the Columbia Valley is a steal! It opens with red raspberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, easy to drink and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum and gentle oak blend with notes of blueberry. I also detected a hint of raspberry tea. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This is a quaffing red wine that while not complex, would be perfect for your holiday parties. Server it sliders. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Dark and rich with a silky palate and flavors of fresh raspberries and salted dark chocolate, this Cabernet Franc-based red wine is a great option to pair with grilled meats and vegetables.
