Wine Review: This midnight violet colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State opens with a fragrant blackberry bouquet with a hint of strawberry licorice. On the palate, this wine is a fruit bomb. It is medium bodied and very very fruit forward. The flavor profile is initially ripe red cherry. With air it evolves into ripe blueberry and blackberry with hints of fresh picked strawberry and some cedar plank in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors and sticky tannins linger for a while. Readers who love Zins will love this wine. I would pair it with slow braised barbecue short ribs. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This Snoqualmie Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe black fruit aromas layered with cocoa and spice. The palate presents with a mouthful of fruit and sweet oak followed by long velvety tannins. This handcrafted wine showcases the best of the varietal and terroir.
