po-bistro-rougeBest Buy! Longtime Sandpoint, Idaho, winemaker Stephen Meyer has been crafting this delicious and affordable red blend for more than a decade. This example leads with Merlot (40%), followed by Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Syrah (17%), Malbec (5%) and Cabernet Franc. Its aromas show off a dark fruit compote of cherry, blackberry and blueberry, accented by a whiff of rose petal, lavender and a dab of chocolate. And in the mouth, the fruit redoubles on the mid-palate and resolves into a finish that features a spicy farewell.
