Columbia Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Wine Spectator 100 Top Values of 2016 Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from vineyards located predominantly on the Horse Heaven Hills and the Wahluke Slope in the Columbia Valley. Vines are planted on south-facing slopes that provide excellent sun exposure for grape ripening, and protection from cold airflow during the winter months. Vineyards are 100% drip irrigation. This, combined with the low water-holding capacity of the soil, allow for precise control of the vines. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, grapes were crushed and then fermented 6–10 days. The wine barrel-aged in 74% older American and French oak barrels for approximately 11 months. The Wine Spectator in addition to naming a Top 100 Value scored it 91 pionts saying "Broad and generous, open-textured and inviting, offering cherry, currant and red plum flavors that swirl enticingly among fine-grain tannins and creamy oak on the finish."
