I’m always down for a bottle of Canvasback as I find it to be consistently good. I enjoy the robust, ripe red & black fruits, the notes of cedar and wood shavings, menthol and baking spices, and the seductively sweet notes of burnt brown sugar, molasses, and Luxardo syrup. While it’s on the higher end of the price I consider reasonable for this selection, it’s still agreeable in my opinion. — 4 days ago
The 2016 ‘Columbia Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful new effort from this warm vintage in Washington. The nose shows off rich blackberry pie, Turkish coffee and sagebrush aromas that meld in the glass. The palate is beautifully balanced, showing ripe red cherry, blueberry compote, coffee grounds and suggestions of black tea and exotic spices. This just might be the first ‘Columbia Valley’ Cabernet Sauvignon wines by Dunham out of roughly fifteen where I have found blue fruits. Nonetheless, this is delicious wine that is drinking marvelously now and will cellar well for at least another ten to fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033- 93 — 15 days ago
Thanksgiving wine #2. 2011 is a challenging vintage and this is definitely at peak. Cedary Bordeaux nose. Classic Dubrul red currant notes on the palate. Tannins are largely resolved, and while there is plenty to enjoy here, drink them if you have them. Happy Thanksgiving! — 9 days ago
Cabernet is my go to wine. This Reserve Cabernet does not disappoint! It is full body, dark red, complex and satisfying as a big red. Will stock up on this for the winter. — a day ago
The ‘Conflict’ is a melange of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with 48% Merlot and a dash of Malbec. Ripe red fruits dance with shades of anise and herbal undertones that take form in the glass. The palate has good freshness and minerality with medium-bodied red and dark fruit flavors, with a touch of milk chocolate. Drink 2019-2029- 91 — 3 days ago
Wow, do I love a Washington state wine!
Roasted hazelnut nose, with a couple of char ones on the mix.
Large, bold body, light berry, fruit leather, smoke, slate, and mirrors.
This is a wine that enjoys company, and I am lucky to dog sit my Sister in laws Ewok for a couple of days..
