#WineWednesday: 90-pt Columbia Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: This Cabernet out of Columbia Valley, Washington, is  is well-structured with firm tannins and ripe dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant layered with notes of toasty oak and cocoa. It’s rich, full-bodied and goes perfectly with the dipping temperatures!

Pair: alongside hearty stews, roasts or wild game meats.

About Washington’s Columbia Valley AVA: As Washington’s largest appellation, the Columbia Valley comprises more than 60 percent (17,000 acres) of the state’s total vinifera grape plantings. Its volcanic, well-drained, sandy loam soils stress the vines to yield focused flavors in our grapes. In most parts of the Columbia Valley, there is an average of 16 hours of sunlight and only eight inches of rainfall.

This combination lends itself to the creation of unique wines with intense color, flavor and structure with a crisp acidity, delighting the palate and providing a vibrant complement to any food pairing.
