I was standing on the aisle talking with a customer about the virtues of my pick for November and it dawned on me that I hadn’t put it up on this blog. Foolish me, since I do want all of you that read my blog (thank you very much), to know about this fantastic Washington red blend.

2013 Maryhill Winemaker’s Red

2013 Maryhill WineMaker’s Red (Columbia Valley, WA)… $12.

Anyone who has been following me, knows how excited I have been about the 2013 vintage out of our state. Most, if not all of the wines I have tasted have been better than past vintages and a lot of them have reached stellar status in my opinion. This little gem is no different.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Franc it is smooth, structured and lifted on the palate. Notes of Currants, dark cherries backed by hits of blueberries and tobacco, penetrate the palate front to finish with a little smoke underneath. This is a “10′ in the delicious factor, yet it has the acidity and tobacco notes that keep everything in harmony. What I like about this wine is it’s versatility and appeal. It would be a very nice red to serve with the upcoming holiday meals. You pull the cork on this baby and you will make a lot of wine drinkers happy. (B+)
