Sagelands Vineyard 2011 Freddie’s Blend, Columbia Valley, $10

By on May 29, 2013

Washington wineBest Buy! The origin of this wine’s name goes back to Frederique Spencer, the French-born winemaker who was Sagelands’ longtime winemaker before Precept bought the winery in 2011. It is a blend that includes plenty of Cabernet Sauvignon (61%), along with Merlot (22%), Syrah (16%) and a touch of Tempranillo. The result is a delicious and affordable red with youthful aromas of cherry, blueberry, coffee, smoke and black pepper. A smooth entry leads to flavors of cherry, vanilla and white chocolate.
