This is a local wine for me, handy in most stores I shop. 52% Merlot - 43% Cabernet Franc - 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The folks at Columbia Crest do most all their wine very nicely. This has a strong aroma of blackberry, raspberry and a hint of floral. Very nice deep flavorful entry of blackberry, a hint of raspberry and nice smooth vanilla. The finish is rich and long and a super buy at under $10 dollars

Beautiful Cabernet for the price, upfront fruit forward and very mellow and deep. Essense of Strawberry, cherry and Cola. Silky and Velvety and as the description on the bottle says "This wine is elegant yet approachable and complex without being complicated" well said. This is a very satisfying sipping Cabernet.

I have had many wines two and three times the price of this one that didn't fare as well. Hints of strawberry, cherry, chocolate, and cola. Not overly complex or complicated, but an easy drinker for regular days.

My Rating 86: Nose well balanced with berrylike flavors, very long. Body:balanced with no outstanding complexity, hint of tannins. Wine shows no hint of Oak aging although the label claims it! But that's not bad. For a wine that cost only $6.50 that a nice deal. Highly recommended everyday wine!!

There's some strawberry and raspberry on the nose. Quite a bit of fruit on the palate. Some nice ripe black cherry. Kind of a fruit bomb. That being said, this drinks more like a zin than a cab. The tannins are a bit weak and the finish, although it has some length, doesn't have much for grip. If it said "Zinfandel" instead of "Cabernet Sauvignon" on the label I might give it a higher rating. The wine itself is actually quite pleasant, but for you big cab fans out there you might be taken aback a bit with the first taste. It just doesn't really feel like a cab at all. If I forget what the label says and just drink the wine I do actually like it quite a bit. It just wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

Delicious everyday drinker. Well balanced, with a good finish. Red fruits dominate upon tasting.

Light in texture, with easygoing currant and plum fruit that's shaded with hints of sage and white pepper. Drink now.

This is the best Cab from Two Vines to date. It's got real concentration and fruit flavor, enhanced with the addition of 11% Cab Franc and 7% Syrah in the blend. Berries, cherries, cassis, plums, coffee and smoke filter through the palate, with just a little bite to the tannins. Very impressive.

From the winery, 'This minimally oaked Cabernet Sauvignon offers fruit-forward aromas and flavors of slight cherry and blueberry throughout. The balance of fruit and soft oak provides a lingering finish with hints of cocoa.'

Check out the deal on this Washington Cab. It's firm and chewy, but the ripe currant and blackberry flavors shine through and linger on the generous finish, and the tad-rough edges should smooth with a little cellar time. Best from 2000 through 2006.

A simple red, this offers fresh, light red plum flavor with plenty of acid. For the barbecue.
