Maryhill Winery 2010 Winemaker’s Red

March 6, 2013 

Appellation: Columbia Valley

Here’s a great wine regardless of price, and it’s especially astonishing at $12. Winemaker Richard Batchelor blended Cab (40 percent), Merlot, Syrah and Cab Franc to come up with this. It is elegant on the aromas, with notes of bright red fruit, cedar, black tea and black pepper, followed by flavors of cherries, blackberries, blueberries and black pepper. The tannins are near-perfect in this charming wine. Buy by the case and make it your house wine. Rated “Outstanding” by Great Northwest Wine. (13.6 percent alcohol).

Price: $12.

Cases produced: 25,935.

Food matches: Spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, grilled or roasted meats.
