Basic Juice Ten Buck Wine Juice

Check out Basic Juice. Beau Jarvis, founder of Basic Juice, wine enthusiast and sommelier, is asking wine friends to imagine they are in a wine shop and to their surprise they only have $10 on them! Oh no! What wine are you going to buy for only $10 bucks? Beau tags various wine blogs and ask them this question and we answer back. For extra points food pairings are encouraged.

Here is what I listed:

House Wine made by the Magnificent Wine Company. It's a bargain at $8.99. A red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), Merlot (32%), Syrah (9%), and Cabernet Franc (1%). It's rich, full bodied with a mouth full of blackberries. For my extra points, I would pair this wine with a big ol' burger topped with grilled Walla Walla onions and local morel mushrooms.

Hell, maybe I would stand out in front of that wine shop and sing for an extra $10 bill. Then I would buy a second bottle of House Wine and pair it with a dessert of brownies topped off with Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream.

How about you? What is your favorite 10-Buck-Washington-State-Gem? Can you do it? Tell me about them in "comments."
