In the glass, this Columbia Valley Merlot/Cab/Malbec/Syrah blend has a beautiful garnet core with electric purple edges and a rose petal halo….
A sniff has a forefront of cedar wood with light cigar smoke and blackberry jam trailing not to far behind….
My first taste is slow to open up with a subtle start of black and blue fruit ———-> The middle starts to show off what’s really under the hood here with vanilla and more of the cedar wood that I got on the nose before a blueberry and raspberry plunge carries the finish into an anise and black cherry ending…..
Here’s another red that overdelivers for the price point and then some! It’s a second label from Grounded Wine Co and for around $20 bucks, it’s a KILLER weeknight pop and pour!
