Columbia Crest Grand Estates Amitage 2008

We’ve been tasting some interesting new wines lately. This one is Columbia Crest Grand Estates Armitage 2008, a red blend from Washington state.

The label doesn’t list the grapes in the blend, but it’s very big, cabernet-like, tannic, with lots of dark fruit taste. Very, very good. We could happily make this a regular house wine.

By the way, it went very well with homemade spaghetti sauce on pasta with spinach.
