Powers Red Bordeaux Blend Columbia Valley Cabernet-Merlot 2009
Bright and juicy aromas of cherries, spearmint and licorice nearly jump out of the glass. Woven seamlessly on the palate with intense flavors of cherry liquor, sweet strawberries, earth and tobacco. This wine bursts with lush silkiness in the mouth and is complimented by perfectly smooth tannins in the lengthy finish. Delicious to savor on its own, it is sure to compliment grilled meats, zesty barbecue and summer italian fare.

Tonight I am enjoying a bottle of 2009 Powers Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a nice wine at a very nice price that I picked up last weekend. This wine has a lovely deep ruby color in the glass, and the nose exhibits classic Columbia Valley Cabernet aromas of leather, cedar, licorice, cocoa powder, and a bit of vanilla and floral overtones at the top. The taste is very fruit forward, with lovely ripe berry and plum bursting forth on your palate, quickly transitioning to a tart cherry midpalate. The young tannins create a tart but long-lasting finish, just as you'd expect from a classic Washington Cabernet.
