Wine Review: This midnight blue colored red blend from Washington State is a good value wine. It opens with black plum and old oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a black plum and blueberry blend with notes of black pepper and old oak. I also detected a touch of blackberry and cranberry as well. The finish is dry and its juicy flavors and moderate tannins linger for quite some time. This wine would pair well with comfort foods like shepherd’s pie or beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This year's Rivers Red is a wine for food and friends. The dominance of Merlot creates a soft and supple wine, while the Sangiovese and Syrah add balanced structure, complexity, and savory notes to this blend. This approachable wine has fruit forward notes of berry, strawberry pie, ripe cherry, cola, and spice with a smooth finish and well-rounded tannins.
