college-cellars-scholarship-redBest Buy! You won’t need a scholarship to afford College Cellars’ Merlot-focused red blend titled “Scholarship Red.” In fact, if you buy it, you’ll be helping provide someone else’s education as a winemaker or grape grower. In exchange for your 15 bucks, you’ll get a Walla Walla Valley wine with aromas of blackberries and blueberries and flavors of blackberry, blueberry and black currant, plus an elegant, juicy finish with restrained tannins. Who knew learning could be this much fun? This earned a double gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
