Bramble Bump is a hill covered in berries in Woodinville, where JM Cellars is located. So it seems appropriate that the winery owners, John and Peggy Bigelow, named a red wine after this special place.
2006 Bramble Bump Red is a great red blend for everyday drinking. This recent release follows the successful 2005 vintage, named by Seattle Magazine in March as the “Best Bordeaux Blend Under $20.00.” (The 2006 Bramble Bump Red is $22.00.)
The full-bodied wine combines Cabernet Sauvignon (57%), Merlot (23%), Syrah (10%), Cab Franc (5%) and Malbec (5%) into a luscious blend that pairs well with strong cheese or beef. It’s ready to drink now, but unlike previous vintages, 2006 Bramble Bump Red can be cellared for 5-10 years.
But take note — wines from JM Cellars sell out quickly, so place your order soon!
