snoqualmie-vineyards-whistle-stop-red-bottleBest Buy! University of Washington grad Joy Andersen took over as Snoqualmie’s winemaker in 1991, and she continues to spoil her budget-conscious fans with bottlings such as this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Merlot. The nose features a beautiful presentation of black cherry, ripe raspberry, smoky dark chocolate and tobacco leaf. What follows is a smooth drink of dark plum, blackberry and chocolate-covered black cherry, backed by a great finish of raspberry and cranberry. These wines are widely distributed and now are poured in Paterson at the Columbia Crest tasting room.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 7,000 cases

Alcohol: 13.5%
