Named after the first dam to span the Columbia River, this is a yummy blend of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Sirah. Aromas of blackberries and currants are complemented by hints of Lavender and dried herbs. It is truly a “crowd pleaser” kind of wine. If you are a fan of rich, deep, fruity flavors of Argentina’s Malbec or California's Cabernet Sauvignon, you gotta grab this bottle.
Food Pairing: Try something big and juicy. Steaks, grilled red meats, game, charcuterie, hard cheese.
