2005 Lenny Wilkens Red Blend ($19.95)
This surprisingly elegant wine–a blend of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot–shows lovely aromas of black cherry, bacon and smoke. Juicy cherry and plum fill your mouth with a burst of complex flavors. Pairs with: Seared pork loin with Cabernet-blackberry reduction sauce.

Created to honor Pike Place Market’s centennial last year, this blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah has aromas of fresh cherry and dust, followed by juicy flavors and mouthwatering acidity. Pairs with: Kobe beef burger with garlic a..ioli and blue cheese.
