Songbird Cellars 2013 Lyrical Red, Columbia Valley, $9

By on February 14, 2015

songbird-lyrical-red-nv-bottleBest Buy! Precept Wine in Seattle created this blend of Syrah (60%) and Merlot using fruit from breathtaking Wallula Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills and Willard in the Yakima Valley. A light hand with oak allows for a nose of black cherry, red currant and cola with whiffs of anise and tar. There’s pleasing balance to its lighter structure that’s focused on Montmorency cherry and blueberry, leading to a finish of plum skin tannins and tangy acidity. These food-friendly wines, built and priced for everyday enjoyment, are available exclusively at Whole Foods Market stores in the Pacific Northwest.
