The 2020 Klipsun Red Blend from Red Mountain, Washington, is a proprietary blend featuring 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 16% Syrah. Presented in a 750ml bottle with a cork closure, this red wine has an alcohol content of 13.9%.

Eric Guido from Vinous praises the wine for its aromatic complexity, stating that it is "perfumed, with nuances of dark chocolate giving way to sage and raspberries." He describes the drinking experience as "silky-smooth and cool-toned in feel," noting that it impresses with "polished red and blue fruits, accentuated by sweet spice notes." Guido also highlights the wine's "crisp and refreshing" nature, finishing with "lingering nuances of tart blackberry." He scores the wine a solid 90 points.

Anthony Mueller from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate offers an even more favorable review, awarding the wine 92 points. Mueller describes the 2020 Red Blend as "dusty, bright, succulently complex," and full-bodied with "balanced characteristics" and "velvety tannins." He emphasizes the wine's "food-friendly acidity," which he believes ensures its longevity beyond its 12th year. According to Mueller, the wine offers "a delightful explosion of ripe red and blue fruit aromas and flavors." He also notes the use of 20% new oak, speculating on the inclusion of American oak despite the winemaker's claim of using 100% French oak. He concludes by affirming that the red blend is "delicious and will improve with age."

Overall, the 2020 Klipsun Red Blend is a well-received wine that showcases the strengths of its varietal components. It offers a complex bouquet, a smooth and balanced palate, and a structure that suggests good aging potential. Both reviewers highlight its capacity to pair well with food, adding to its appeal as a versatile and enjoyable wine.
