Cabs or Blends with Cabs.
Sineann, Table Wine, Oregon, 2015 $19
This wine mixes barrels from all the red wines in Sineann's portfolio! It's dark and spicy, the flavors well integrated. It winds up a potent and powerful all-purpose barbeque red, loaded with black fruits and finished with a kiss of caramel.
Barons, Petite Barone, Columbia Valley, 2012 $22
This is a different blend from previous vintages of Petit Barone, with Merlot dominant with Cabernet Sauvignon riding shotgun. Light and fruity, with hints of pepper, raspberry and cherry flavors, this is an easy-going quaffer.
