Northwest Cellars 2012 Serenade, Columbia Valley, $16

By on December 9, 2014

northwest-cellars-serenade-2012-labelKirkland, Wash., vintner Robert Delf’s entry-level blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (35%), Syrah (22%) and Carménère continues to be a solid, everyday drinker that’s leans a bit toward the Old World with its lighter, food-friendly structure. The yummy theme of black cherry and blueberry picks up some oak influence with notes of vanilla, roasted coffee and clove, backed by cola, huckleberry and saddle leather.

Rating: Excellent
