Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Chateau Ste. Michelle

Indian Wells Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix Here is a nice one from Columbia Valley.

A pretty color of dark purple with a wide purplish rim.

Light nose of blackberries, black plums, black cherries, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, light vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco, dark chocolates, mocha and earth.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, sweet cherries, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, vanilla, earth, coffee cola, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is starting to drink nicely, although a few years in the bottle would be a good idea.

A little light on the nose even after 2 hours of airtime. Spicy with mild complexity, a great mouthfeel and nice balance.

Good right out of the bottle and good for parties. A good sipping wine too.

Aged for 20 months in French and American oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$18.

Artist Series #23 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

2014 tasted 12/2018. Full bodied dark crimson, tremendous concentration. Very ripe bramble fruit dominates the nose, followed by hints of vanilla. Ripe black fruit, dry, silky tannins on the palate. Again the concentration is superb, high alcohol at 14.8% but it is balanced by the fruit and a good acid structure. β€” 10 days ago

Chester-Kidder Columbia Valley Red Blend 2014

This was ready to go the moment the cork was pulled. The juicy blue and black fruits just about leap from the glass and the palate, wow, just fabulous. Sweet, juicy tannins gush across it leading to a long, intoxicating finish. Love everything I’ve had from this producer. β€” 6 days ago

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Nice combo of fresh and dried berry flavors, big fruit, big oak, and pretty big alcohol but all come together nicely with seemingly more acidity than you would get down in Napa. Very nice β€” 3 days ago

I like this cab a lot. It’s not a sweet fruit bomb. Definitely on the lean side of New World cab but nicely balanced. Served alongside rib eyes, Korean rice and arugula salad. β€” 3 days ago
