THREE RIVERS RIVER'S RED 2006
The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: The Three Rivers River's Red 2006 is another in a long line of great values from the unsung wine region of Columbia Valley. If California could only turn out this kind of consistency. Blended differently each year, this year's Syrah-dominant mix (with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot) is a winner, showing medium-body and juicy, fresh red and black berry fruit flavors and aromas of black cherry, fresh ground cinnamon, plum and hints of white and black pepper. There is a lot of depth for a really affordable red wine. Definitely check this one out.
