Arbor Crest Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley Dionysus 2009

Member Review by lulurossi:

I recently went wine tasting at the picturesque winery of Arbor Crest. My favorite was the Dioysus, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Interesting fact: As you may know, wines are named after the grapes, but blends give the winemaker the opportunity to name it at will. Limited release red-blend Dionysus, is named after is the god of wine, the inspirer of ritual madness and ecstasy.
