Roller Girl 2010 Jammer Red, Walla Walla Valley, $19

By on April 20, 2013

Washington wineLooking for a red wine with a bit of an attitude? Maybe an assertive streak? This second label from SuLei Cellars in Walla Walla should do the trick. The winery owners are involved in the local roller derby team, so they created this line that includes Jammer Red, Pivot Blanc and Blocker Rosé. This delicious and affordable red is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It opens with aromas of alder smoke, pomegranate and milk chocolate, followed by flavors of plum, oak and something that reminded us of sizzling ham. It has great structure backing all the flavor and should pair well with grilled steak, meatloaf or an elbow to the ribs.

Rating: Excellent
