Columbia Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is made to showcase the ripe dark fruit flavors Washington Cabernet can produce in an approachable style. With layers of complexity, this wine has a firm structure and smooth tannins that lead to a broad mouthfeel and soft, juicy finish. Notes of mocha and toffee complement the ripe blackberry and black currant flavors.

Columbia Winery was founded in 1962 during the birth of the Washington wine industry by a group of 10 people from Seattle, 6 of whom were University of Washington professors. Under the name "Associated Vintners", their goal was to bring european-style wine to Washington State. They began production in the basement of a Laurelhurst home and grew to one of the largest producers in the state. The winery has the distinction of being the first premium winery in the state as well as having the frist Master of Wine on the continent as their winemaker--David Lake. David Lake was instrumental in bringing several varietals, including Syrah, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, and Pinot Gris, into the state through a partnership with Mike Sauer, the owner of the Red Willow vineyard. Columbia Winery was the first in the state to commercially produce a Syrah, which has become one of Washington's most acclaimed varietals. Currently, Columbia Winery produces anything from a stylish Malbec, to their most popular Cellarmaster's Riesling, to beautifully crafted Syrahs and Cabernets, to a beautiful Bordeaux style blend named The Peninsula. The 2003 Otis Cabernet was awarded a spot among the top 100 wines in Washington according to the Seattle Times and the 2007 Small Lot Riesling, a lovely, crisp off-dry riesling was named the Northwest wine of the Week. They are open for tasting 7 days a week from 10-6. Tastings cost $5; a small price to pay for 5 tastes from a menu of 8 wonderful wines. The tasting room staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and prides themselves on educating visitors on Columbia Winery as well as Washington wine. Read less

Dusty and dry but quite fruity aromas of plum, raisin and red currant. Nicely spiced and red fruited on the palate with raspberry, red currant and Bing cherry flavors with a touch of herb clinging to the edges and streaks of resinous tannin coming through on the chocolatey finish. 89 pts

Chalky, dusty aromas of blackberry and black cherry. In the mouth this has pleasant spice and nice fruit flavors of black cherry, blackberry, nicely balanced with a touch of spice and a pleasantly tannic finish.

If you are into Cab Suav's, then this is a bargin wine for you. While not a complex cab, it does have a solid fruity nose, average legs and a decent finish. It has a nice medium dark cherry color, with a solid Cherry smell and tast, hint of current and a nice under tone of cedar. You will find your enjoyable pepper over lay. Excellent with a bar-b-que steak or beef kabob.

Deep garnet with ripe cherry on the nose. Ripe cherry with cassis and gloves on the palate with tobacco on the finish. A well structured wine that will pair perfectly with a grilled steak. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

Rich ruby red color with aromas of black currants, toasted cedar and sweet fruit. On the palate, flavors of cassis, dark berries with ripened red cherries, smooth vanilla beans and soft cedar notes. Round and full bodied with textured, lengthy tannins. - Winery
