Bordeaux the American Way
Bordeaux blends (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and/or Petit Verdot) made in the USA.
Duck Pond Red Blend Wahluke Slope Red Blend (2009)
Comments: Deep, dark fruits with a cassis sweetness and some dark chocolate. Subtle oak with enough earth to round out the sweetness. Very sippable and I'm guessing pretty awesome at a cookout.
Casa Nuestra Meritage (2009)
Comments: I just want to start out by saying I don't normally go for this style of wine. At. All. But this winery changes all of my perceptions about Napa wines and New World Bordeaux blends. The oak influences are perfectly calibrated, elegant and subtle. The fruit is forward without being overpowering. Complexities keep opening up in the glass. This wine is pure joy and a wonderful surprise. I have another bottle that I'm cellaring, curious to how it will evolve, but anxious to open it!

Cliff Creek Claret (2006)
Comments: Very lively and flavorful. Slightly toasty, but not overpowering with the vanilla notes. Tart black cherry with a decent acid balance. Great sipper on its own, but would also make a versatile food wine.
