3 Horse Ranch Vineyards 2014 Merlot Cabernet Franc, Washington, $21

By on December 19, 2016

Idaho vintner Gary Cunningham continues to sell more wine than he can get grapes for in the Snake River Valley, so he works with Sunnyslope winemaker Greg Koenig to blend Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%) from Washington’s Columbia Valley for this delicious bottling. Aromas of red cherry, crushed raspberry and fresh strawberry lead to flavors of bright red fruit along with chocolate tones. This wine delivers a lot for the price and earned a gold medal at the 2016 Idaho Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!
