Simply Red Blend, Washington 2018
Enjoy this fruit-forward red bursting with bing cherries intermixed with plums and blueberries. The fruit has a jammy nature, but is not over the top. Simply is medium-bodied with no hard edges: there is just enough balancing acidity and light velvety tannins. Simply is estate-grown and made by Milbrandt, who is a respectable producer in the Columbia Valley. The fruit comes from two vineyard sites and is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Syrah, 19% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc.You can sip this red on its own, or pair it with burgers and other barbecue. It has an impressive quality-to -price ratio.
