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.

Did You Know?

In making white wine, the highest-quality batch of juice is called the free run. It's the grape juice that flows off a load of grapes naturally, from the weight of the harvest pressing down on itself, right after the load is harvested.
