WS 88 WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Polished, open-textured and distinctive, with a minty edge to the currant and plum fruit, lingering easily on the soft finish. Drink now.
According to Wine Enthusiast - CSM’s mainstream Cabernet Sauvignon now carries a “100% vinifera rootstock” designation—surely a first for any American winery. It displays more structure than some of the other, similarly priced offerings from the Northwest’s largest winery group. With good focus and length, its mix of plum and berry fruit, nicely set in a frame of toast, coffee and charred wood, makes it a surefire, all-purpose, medium-bodied red.
Tasting Notes - We craft our Columbia Valley Cabernet to highlight concentrated Washington red fruit in an accessible style. This is an inviting Cab with plenty of complexity and structure with silky tannins. It’s also very versatile with food. I like this wine with beef tenderloin and pasta. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Syrah, 2% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Mourvedre.13.5% ABV.
