Cool climate notes shine through. Soft, round and subtle. Very attractive with crushed flowers, and relatively soft tannins complete what is an excellent package

Thanks @E.S. First time for us. We thought it was great. Represents a nice change of pace from Napa cabs.

The Dissident Columbia Valley Red Blend 2012

For International Merlot day I'm going with a Bordeaux blend from Columbia Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Soft nose of blueberries, plums, wood, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, vinaigrette, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite, bitter herbs, black tea and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black currants, black plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, green herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, vegetables, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a nice surprise. A great Bordeaux Blend from Washington State. Well balanced and earthy with a nice mouthfeel and a tangy ending, that I really liked.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (90 minutes).

Might have been better a year or two ago, even though, this was a great vintage and it's showing great complexity.

Thank you Scott for sharing.

I paired it with cheeses, meats and light appetizers.

A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 11% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
A production of 95 barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$35.

Just a big wow. Duckhorn bringing the heat these days! Wonderful expression of cab.
FYI, I loathe ghetto-pours, unless it’s a by the glass serving. Loved the pour here 🙂

Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

A New Washington wine to me. Not fruit forward like many Washington wines. Dark fruit, forest floor, leather. Lots of tannin. I’m buying this wine. A real bargain. Better then a lot of more expensive wines. A real sleeper! — 14 days ago

Notes of coffee on the nose. Typical Napa cab presentation. On the palate it’s tannic and boisterous, but it demonstrates its pedigree. Black cherries dominate the palate. My type of cab, which needs bottle age. — 21 days ago
