three-rivers-winery-rivers-red-2012-bottleBest Buy! Holly Turner bills this as a wine for food and friends, and she produced a striking package with her fun blend of Merlot (44%), Sangiovese (33%), Syrah (16%), Cabernet Sauvignon (3%), Lemberger (2%) and Cabernet Franc. The gorgeous nose is reminiscent of Hawaiin Fruit Punch and blueberry milkshake with hints of vanilla and cola. There’s a massive delivery of dark blue fruit with tons of structure, making this a big, rich and delicious wine. Enjoy with charcuterie from Salumiere Cesario in Walla Walla.
