Wine Review: This pitch black colored blend from Columbia Crest is a steal. It is a lot of wine for the money. It opens with a mild black cherry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, juicy and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blackberry with notes of gentle minerality and oak. I also detected hints of blueberry in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins stick around for quite some time. This wine would be great for all your winter holiday parties. Buy it by the case. I would pair it with Kobe 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.
