Best Buy! The entry level to Rob Griffin’s Signature Red Wine series is this approachable, consumer-friendly blend where Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot combine for 84% of this base. Vineyard sources include Arete and Caroway in the Columbia Valley along with Black Rock in the Yakima Valley, and it spent 19 months in European oak barrels of varying usage. The results are fruit-forward with a nose of sweet cherry, blueberry jam and blood orange. Cherry pie filling and blueberry flavors come with pleasing chocolaty tannins as pomegranate acidity makes for a long finish. Look for this at bargain prices at grocery stores throughout the Northwest.
