Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley
A meaty, savory style lets its ripe plum and currant flavors submerge themselves in layers of roasted pepper and a smoky, stewlike character. It all lingers on the distinctive finish. Best from 2010 through 2017.
Bright and generous on a medium-weight frame, currant and blueberry fruit emerging easily against hints of red pepper, with refined tannins, long and inviting. Drink now through 2016.
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is purple-colored with aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, earth notes, black currant, and blackberry. On the palate the wine is smooth textured with a solid core of spicy black fruits and good balance with enough structure for 1-2 years of further development. The finish is long and fruit-filled. Drink this excellent Cabernet from 2010 to 2017.
This cabernet packs plenty of stuffing for a great price. Scents of mocha, black spice and a hint of menthol adorn the dark cassis fruit. Its tannins are fine but firm, laced around a core of blue-black fruit. Decant for steak.
Dense and chewy, with a strong blackberry note that sings out through a layer of firm, peppery tannins and the mocha of oak. Needs time to soften. Best after 2008.
Polished and well-knit, offering blueberry, currant and dusky spice flavors, with a hint of roasted red pepper and a touch of licorice as the finish sails along beautifully. Drink now through 2014.
Good deep red. Oaky redcurrant dominates the nose. Supple, sweet and easygoing, with round, oak-driven red fruit flavors. A very pliant style with modest complexity.
