Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills 2015

Member Review by EMark:

Boy, you can sure see the difference between a Cab from WA and one from CA. This is a full-bodied wine, but it is not a "full frontal assault on your palate."There are some blackberry flavors, but that is pretty much it for fruit. I get some light earthiness, but nothing to bother me. Tannins are there and provide nice structure, Finish is remarkably smooth. US$12.99 at WIne Club in Santa Ana.

Great Cabernet for the price. One of Washingtons finest. Deep berry flavor, mildly smokey, cocoa, some rose petal hints and a beautiful lasting finish with well mild tannins. Horse heaven hills is one of my favorite wines.

My Rating:88. This wine has a lean body with a blackberry taste and little too much acid on the finish. The nose is long restrained elegant. The price of $ 11.99 is too high for this wine

Columbia Crest H3 wines are the bomb, a fruit bomb that is. Horse Heaven Hills produces concentrated consistent wines that will please any palate.

Focused, refined and appealing for its open-weave texture around a generous core of plum and currant fruit, finishing with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Drink now through 2014. 69,000 cases made. -HS

Inviting aromas of cassis, licorice and dark berries mingle with slight earth notes. The voluminous texture is accented by flavors of fruit preserves and leads to a long and silky finish.

'This intense, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of cherry blossom, and rose petals, with a perfect balance of earth, mineral, deep berry flavors, and a soft, smooth cocoa finish.' -Ray Einberger, Winemaker
