I'm always telling wine lovers (or those who will listen to me) -- Walla Walla wineries produce some of the best red table blends around and for the excellent quality and affordability, you can't beat 'em.
Dedication One from Cougar Crest Winery is another fine example of what I preach. Cougar Crest Winery is an estate winery. The Hansen family wines are made from grapes grown in their vineyards and fermented, aged and bottled at their winery.
A non-vintage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, and Petit Verdot showing flavors of ripe black cherries and creamy milk chocolate. This red table blend is not only a perfect wine for every night family dining, but an award winner, too! In April, Dedication One was given a double gold at the 25th West Coast Wine Competition held in Santa Rosa, CA. But this wine is more than a medal winner, as Cougar Crest has dedicated their Dedication One and a portion of the wine's proceeds to the Doernbecher Children's Hospital at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon.
A great wine - a great value - a great cause.
