Columbia Valley Old Vines Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The 2017 ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a sinfully good new wine by Mark Ryan. Aromatically intense, the wine has sagebrush, mocha and tar tones that are woven together with deep dark fruits and shades of pipe tobacco that all sing in unison in the glass. The weight and balance of the wine is downright awesome, as the pillowy, soft texture entices. While this provides plenty of appeal in its youth, the 2017 ‘Old Vines’ Cabernet Sauvignon will have a long life ahead of it. Be sure to give this at least a one hour decant if enjoying in its nascent phase. Drink 2020-2033- 93 — 6 days ago

Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Cabernet Franc Blend 2014


Gamey on the nose and slightly overripe or very very ripe fruit. Not my vibe. It’s good. Don’t get me wrong, but overpriced. #washingtoncab #washington #washingtonwine #cabfranc #merlot — 12 days ago

The Burn Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Definitely tasting the oak and terroir here — rugged and deep/inky, this would go very well with a rustic red meat dish. Quite good! — 4 days ago

Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc 2016

This is Is it very nice Cabernet Franc from Columbia Valley. Showing blue and red fruits, oak, licorice, chocolates, spices, light vegetables, bell pepper and peppercorn.

Medium-plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate and smooth.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle, and becomes earthier as it opens up (1 hour).

I had it blind and called Washington State Merlot 2017. I was a little off.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

13.4% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

This is a good Cab Franc!

Chateau Ste. Michelle

Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Terrific, if not underrated. Lots of berry with a loamy finish, mixed with notes of mushroom and tobacco leaves. Secondary flavors are quite prominent. Had to cork it for a couple of days and it didn’t hold up well, becoming rather one dimensional and uninteresting. — 6 days ago

Plus One Kiona Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

A wine with a soft beginning, but it explodes at the end. Black tea and tobacco on the nose. Ripe fruit on the front (cassis and blueberries), and, although the fruit is sweet, it’s very restrained. The tannins are also restrained, but at the same time they’re solid and smooth with a gentle mouth feel on the mid palate. And like the guiding hand of an old friend, with a gentle insistence they lead you into a room where there’s a surprise party waiting for you. And the band starts playing as you enter the room. It’s an unexpected finale which is pretty spectacular, with all sorts of high notes overlaid on deeper earth tones. Then the earth notes fade, leaving the high notes vibrating into a long finish. This wine can only get better, but it’s fantastic right now. — a day ago

Okanagan Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Big, bold velvety cab Sav. Plums, blackberries and deliciously freshly ripe cherries. Hints of cassis followed by a smooth tapered finish. Can easily cellar for another 5-8 years. — 5 days ago

@Hugh O'Riordan I bought it at the winery. Can also buy it at some select local liquor stores. Can also buy straight from their website. I don’t know if their wines are available in US stores.

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Enjoyable option from the domestic wine aisle. Rounded, dark fruit blueberry profile; would have pegged it for a Cabernet franc rather than Cabernet Sauvignon — 8 days ago
