Waterbrook 2004 Melange

My family loves this stuff. At our family events we will often have a bottle or two to share. Every vintage of the Melange we have tasted has always been an elegant wine. Can't beat the price either for a wine that gets good reviews. We watch for it to go on sale at Super-One Food Stores/Huckleberry's/Rosauer stores in Walla Walla and Spokane. Often $9.99 - $12.00. I found it at $7.99 at Cost Plus - World Market once.

An unusual blend of 40% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 9% Sangiovese, and 8% Syrah. And a very soft and smooth wine with bright flavors of plum, currants, cherries, and vanilla with a bit of cigar box going on. A good example of an excellent Walla Walla table red with an excellent value.
