2014 Grapesmith & Crusher Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Classic Cabernet aromas, with red and dark currant supported by oak spice. Rich and round on the palate, with firm structure and a long, balanced finished. This is pretty classic Washington state Cabernet, with generous fruit and a sufficient minerality to make it a crowd-pleaser but not the fruit bomb that is typical of California Cabernet at this price point.
