External Reviews for Novelty Hill Red Blend Columbia Valley
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers aromas of fresh herbs, olives, earth notes, violets, and black currant. Ripe with some structure on the palate, it has good volume and concentration and medium length. Give it 2ndash;3 years of additional bottle age and drink it from 2012 to 2022. Novelty Hill and Stillwater Creek Vineyard are owned by Tom Alberg. The vineyard, located on the Royal Slope of the Frenchman Hills (way off the beaten path), was planted in 2000 and has acquired a reputation for the high quality of its fruit. A year ago the winery moved into its new quarters in Woodinville which it shares with Januik Winery. The Novelty Hill wines are made by the talented Mike Januik. This portfolio over-delivers in a very big way.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A deep, concentrated wine with fresh blackberry, dark cherry and red currant. Expressive and balanced, with dark fruit flavors persisting across a long, generous finish
