Wine Review: The 2015 Seven Falls “Rapids Red” blend from Washington is dark ruby red in color. It opens with a nice fruity blackberry jam bouquet with some hints of plum and oak. The palate is light bodied and juicy with flavors of blackberry, black raspberry and black pepper with a touch of herbs. The mouthfeel is round and the balance is good. This wine has a nice dry dusty, slightly tannic finish. I would pair this red blend with a turkey burger with salsa. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This is a beautiful blend that shows boldness and depth but at the same time restraint and finesse. A mix of both dark fruit and softer red fruit. Hints of dried fruit and anise. This blend is mouth-coating with a spicy, smooth, elegant finish. Pair with pepper steak, lamb, rich stews, and strong cheeses.

Organic status: not organic
