What we’re drinking: Maryhill Red

Mary writes:

Looking for an affordable red wine blend from Washington? There’s plenty out there to try, but as we know when you’re standing in the grocery store aisle looking at the vast selection it can be a little overwhelming — especially if you’re looking to try something new.

So let us offer a suggestion for the next time you’re in the store looking for a not too pricey red.

The Maryhill 2010 Columbia Valley Winemaker’s Red is a delicious blend of cab, merlot, syrah and cabernet franc. The ruby red color is saturated, which gives the wine a complexity of flavors.

Aromas of berries, cherries and minerals lead to flavors of dark cherries, blackberries, currants with cocoa powder and a finish that is harmonious and long lasting. This wine is widely available and ranges from $12 to $15.
