Featured Wine Ingredient Kit -- Cellar Craft Showcase Cabernet-Merlot

Cellar Craft Showcase Walla Walla Cabernet-MerlotBare Ridge Vineyard in Walla Walla, Washington is the grape source for Cellar Craft Showcase Walla Walla Cabernet-Merlot. Walla Walla reds were what first put Washington on the world wine map. Washington reds are now grouped with world standard reds from Bordeaux, Napa and Sonoma. Walla Walla Cabernets and Merlots are consistently in the top ten of the finest wines from America.

This wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet and Merlot but it also typifies the unique Walla Walla profile of intense fruit and spice flavors and aromatics. Subtle currant, cherry and plum notes are backed by hints of black pepper, anise and coffee. The wine is oaked in a two-stage process using French and Hungarian oaks which very nicely mellows the tannins and adds jut a hint of toastiness.

BlueStem Winery features both Cellar Craft kits and WinExpert kits in their wine making product inventory. We also feature a complete line of winemaking supplies and brewing equipment in our Parkersburg, Iowa store.
