Waterbrookandrsquo;s red wines are still a work in progress but the 2008 Melange Noir can be recommended. It is a four variety blend with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in the lead.

Ripe and plump, generous with its spicy, mocha-scented cherry and blackberry flavors, persisting smoothly through the long, harmonious finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2010.
Washington Super Tuscan plus! Cabernet Sauvignon (33%), Sangiovese (26%), Merlot (25%), Syrah (13%) and if that wasn't enough a dash of Cabernet Franc (3%) like perfume behind the ears! This is Old World winemaking with experimental flair. Also delicious. Extremely balanced and pure with sinewy frame and layers of fresh, ripe fruit.
Young, fragrant, and loaded with milk chocolate and spicy berry. Tight, tannic, with grip and tang; pleasingly moderate, listed under 14% alcohol. Although this has no Grenache in it, it has that sort of tart berry quality, with stiffer tannins.
Lithe and distinctive, with a harmonious range of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and spice mingling effortlessly on the light, refined finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo.
