Big and somewhat over-extracted Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon. A popular style if lacking balance. Big fruit.

Joseph Phelps’ son Josh has done it!!!!!!! Josh Phelps wanted to make an approachable wine for people under 100 dollars. This is 22 dollars and holds its own against any 100 dollar cab Blend I have ever had and its from WASHINGTON!!!!! Holy crap. I am so impressed. I am also drinking his Steady State which is 66 dollars, and is equally as good with more perfume flare on the nose and more merlot blend on the tongue. But for 22 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am buying a case of this Collusion 2016 red wine! This will be my new go to house wine!!!! To sum it up:SMOKY, red licorice bouquet, blackberry and dark currant beginning with a twist of raspberry. Vanilla and butter follow with a French oak following. Earth and spice notes on the dry finish. No sourness noted after decant of 20 min which was evident at first. OMG .. 22 bucks???? Really? I love You tube and wine tasting videos! What a find! You Rock Josh Phelps.
