This superb and inexpensive Cab is made by Ross Mickel of Ross Andrew Winery in Woodinville, Wash., and is marketed by Precept Wines in Seattle. The blend includes 25% Merlot using grapes from Red Mountain, the Horse Heaven Hills and other Columbia Valley sources. It’s a fresh, youthful wine with aromas of purple plum, huckleberry, chocolate and mint, followed by fresh, fleshy flavors of cherry, blueberry, red currant and chocolate. Mild tannins make this suave, beautifully integrated Cab approachable now. At this price, make it your midweek house red. Rated “Outstanding” by Great Northwest Wine. (13.8 percent alcohol)

Price: $15.

Cases produced: 1,200 cases.

Food matches: Grilled meats, pizza, grilled portabella mushrooms or lasagna will pair nicely with this everyday-priced red.
