Food Pairings for Waterbrook Red Blend Columbia Valley Mélange
Got this wine in Fresh Market in Gainesville, FL. Was in the "90+ wines for under $20" rack. Price, $14.99. The wine was good, but I have to admit I was expecting a lot more. It had some good oaky notes (which I like) but had a flat finish. Good with food, but maybe not so good on its own.
A nice affordable Bordeaux blend from Washington St. Berry aromas, medium fruity and dry.
Disjointed, thin and very disappointing cosidering the amazing cabernets that Waterbrook makes.
External Reviews for Waterbrook Red Blend Columbia Valley Mélange
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.
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.
This bright blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese and cabernet franc has a caramel scent to go along with its dark cassis flavors. Balanced, clean, fruity and bright, it's got the dusty sangiovese tannins for braised beef.
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.
Fresh and lively, open in texture, with blackberry and red pepper aromas and flavors, picking up an earthy note as the sweet fruit persists on the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and others. Drink now through 2010.
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.
Not as forward and lush as the appealing 2005, this all-purpose red, tasted a few months prior to its official release, is still knitting the components together. What is in place is plenty of tart, ripe raspberry fruit, precise and clean, and a soft backdrop of lightly chocolaty tannins.
Apricot, nectarine, citrus, clover honey and tropical fruit. A refreshing wine with a balanced finish.
