Love Cosentino! This one doesn't fail to deliver. Nose - blackberries, casis, little bit of boxwood, and a note from the Bourbon barrel. Taste - bit of black pepper, blackberries, strawberries, cherries. Slight influence of the Bourbon Barrel aging, but not the sweetness that often comes with that.
Very good, especially for the price. — 16 days ago
This CVR, Columbia Valley Red, is a blend of 87% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot and 3% each of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and ripe red fruits with notes of smoky cedar and earthy herb notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and black cherry with sweet spice, black pepper and mineral notes. Long finish ending with smoky cedar, earthy notes and stewed fruit. Good balance, great now!

Time for some Merlot on this #MerlotThursday.
Purple in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of black plums, black currants, oak, spices, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, light alcohol, blueberries, light earth, pencil lead, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.
Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a young red blend from Columbia Valley. Fruit forward with a nice mouthfeel.
A good everyday wine to sip on by the porch. Easy drinking, tangy and interesting.
Good now, and will be better in a couple of years. Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
A blend of 45% Merlot with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, Syrah and Grenache. Aged for 9 months in neutral oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Fantastic cab. Boysenberry jam, cocoa butter and thyme on the nose. Lovely acidity, soft tannins and a long finish. Never been a Cabernet person but appreciate the different styles. However this style might be my go-to. Washington cab gets my vote. I’m surprised this wasn’t rated higher but I guess because it doesn’t drink like a jammy California cab it has been deemed inferior... big mistake. Gets a 9.0 from me. Solid A. — 4 days ago
