Food Pairings for Waterbrook Red Blend Columbia Valley Mélange Noir
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.
External Reviews for Waterbrook Red Blend Columbia Valley Mélange Noir
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.
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, itandrsquo;s got the dusty sangiovese tannins for braised beef.
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.
Crisp in texture and beautifully focused to show its rose petal-accented blackberry and cherry flavors, finishing firm and persistent. Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and others. Best from 2009 through 2013.
Generous, supple and appealing for its savory-accented cherry flavors, lingering effectively against a mild burr of tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Counoise, Grenache, Mourvegrave;dre, Cinsault, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Carignane. Drink now through 2015.
Washington Super Tuscan plus! Cabernet Sauvignon (33%), Sangiovese (26%), Merlot (25%), Syrah (13%) and if that wasnrsquo;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.
Aromatic ripe berries and spice marry with light cedar notes. A well rounded palate of black cherry and cigar box leads to lingering toasted oak on the finish.
