November 23, 2012

Wine of the week:

Cluster Red Blend

Price: $9.99

Region: Columbia Valley, WA
Grape: Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot

Any realtor can tell you why do wines from Washington State blow away California wines in the same price point…location, location, location! Warm days and cool nights, the might Columbia River to provide a steady water supply and a near lack of population leads to perfect vineyard land that’s incredibly cheap compared to their Napa cousins! In fact, we defy anyone to find a California blend at this under-$10 price that can compete with Red Cluster? We’ve been looking for years and haven’t found it yet!

Tasting Notes:

  • Aromas of cherries and plums, flavors of blackberry jam and oak Pork with fruit, Lamb chops,Teriyaki Beef
  • Lush and Ripe
  • Perfect for parties

Enjoy! xo,Caitlin
