Wine Review: Magnificent Wine Company House Wine 2003 (NW)
Strawberry and raspberry on the palate
A dark, woody layer
Nice finish with moderate tannis
There is a lot of great wine from the Columbia Valley in Washington and this is no exception. It's an interesting blend of grapes with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. This is close to a Bordeaux-style blend, but not quite due to the Syrah. It has good texture and nice overall flavors. Don't let the label fool you- it looks like a home-made label with "House Wine" in huge black-on-white lettering. I paid $10 for the wine on sale, reduced from $12. Raise a glass!
