A LITTLE BIT OF HOLIDAY CHEER FROM COLUMBIA VALLEY: GOOD FRIEND JOHN BOOKWALTER DELIVERS A GREAT VALUE JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS

I recently received a sample from my good friend John Bookwalter.  His new wine, titled “Bookmark,” is a tasty little red blend, clocking in at around $12 a bottle.  When he told me the price, saying he’d gladly send a sample, I had to say, “John, you can send a sample, but I will take a pallet.”  A Bookwalter wine has been ranked #1 or #2 in my Top 50 for the past three years running for good reason; John’s wines kick serious ass.  And this one in particular – the Bookwalter Bookmark Red Columbia Valley 1NV (Grade=Outstanding+) is primarily Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, showing off its tank-and-neutral-French-oak fermentation with bright cherry, raspberry and cola notes, hints of white pepper, white cinnamon and red currants, clove tobacco, dark chocolate and mint, finishing with well-balanced acidity.  It is a lot of wine for the money.  We should be seeing this wine in the store before Christmas.
