Tasting Notes

The Indian Wells Red Blend is an easy to enjoy red from warmer climate vineyards. The wine reflects the rich, round powerful style of Washington fruit, highlighting nine varietals. It is a true example of the art of blending. The wine offers jammy boysenberry flavors from the Syrah with a luscious concentration from the Merlot.
