The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley is all Cabernet Sauvignon and comes from a mix of sites in the Columbia Valley and was brought up in 25% new French oak. It has plenty of darker fruits and earthy, herbal notes, medium body, terrific fruit, and a balanced, layered, charming style that's going to keep for 8-10 years. As normal, it's a smoking value.
Bittersweet chocolate, spicy dried herb, barrel spice and cherry aromas lead to elegant, juicy, well-balanced fruit flavors that carry on the finish. Grippy tannins back it up. Pair it with food to see it at its best.
