Member Review by Court Collins:

As with all the Crane Lake I have enjoyed a simple merlot that isn't very complex but easy to drink.

Crane Lake Cellars:
Crane Lake is a value-driven brand produced by Franzia and Bronco Wine Company. The majority of these wines are produced in California, with some branching out into Australia (for Down Under Chardonnay and others). These are available in supermarkets and most retailers. 
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Good five-buck wine. Dry, full-bodied and juicy in youthful berry jam, and even a kiss of smoky oak.

Simple, forward red cherry fruit and pleasingly grainy tannins make this an approachable wine for right now. Match those tannins with a pork chop.
