Columbia Valley 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon - Special Anniversary Bottling

Wine Enthusiast, 2017

89 Points - September 1

For Cabernet, the aromas are surprisingly blue and purple fruited, almost smelling more like a Syrah. Putting that aside, it brings a lot of appeal with a real sense of freshness to the fruit flavors. The tannins seem a bit bunched up at present, needing a little more time to stretch out. Still, it provides plenty of enjoyment.
