What’s in my glass?

I will be submitting these brief wine recommendations to my readership on the Saddlebag Notes website a few times a month. Wines that I recommend can usually be found locally, although I may occasionally suggest exceptional wines that must be purchased online.


2014 Seven Falls Cellars Rapids Red

Hailing from Washington State, this red blend has become one of my favorite weekday wines. A mix of mostly Merlot and Syrah, this is a full bodied red, bursting with red and black fruits with a hint of spice and solid structure. A bulk buy for sure, it can be purchased for $12 at Plaza Liquors on Campbell.
