Drink of the Week: Echelon Vineyards 2010 Red Blend

With summer officially upon us, and barbecue season in high gear, we’re filling (and refilling) our glasses with today’s Drink of the Week—the 2010 Red Blend from Echelon Vineyards. We know that red wine and warm weather might seem like an odd match, but trust us on this one—or better yet, get a taste for yourself. Crafted mostly from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown in California’s Central Valley, this wine strikes a crowd-pleasing balance between fruity freshness and a solid structure that tastes well beyond its 10-dollar price tag. Open a bottle, fire up the grill and raise a glass to the warmer weather ahead.
