Covey Run Lemberger 2005 & Steelhead

Covey Run Lemberger 2005 Columbia Valley (Washington)
A basic “red wine.” A nice one, but red wine nonetheless. Few distinguishing characteristics. We occasionally taste reds that are good wines, but just nothing very special. Before we remembered the price of this bottle, we said to ourselves, “this is a Yes wine at $7; if it were $15 it would be a No.” $6 locally, and if close to that price in your area worth a try.

Columbia River Steelhead from Washington. Pan grilled yellow pepper slices in butter, basil, and thyme, sprinkled with Parmesian. A side of left-over angel hair pasta in a left-over sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce.
