Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a fragrant blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a black cherry and mild oak blend with notes of black plum. I also detected a hint of black licorice and dash of black pepper in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins are subtle. This is a friendly Cab that would pair well with sliders. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is an inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food. I like this wine with beef tenderloin and pasta.
