Aromatic nose of plum, sweet cherry, and vanilla
Silky smooth palate
A touch of chocolate on the smooth finish
This wine is very smooth and round for a Cabernet Sauvignon. While it may not be the best representation of this varietal, it's delicious. A lot of flavors are packed into this wine for the pricetag- $7 a bottle. I have a case in my cellar as a reliable fall-back wine, when my wife and I can't decide what we want. It always pleases the palate and is fun to drink.
Columbia Crest makes really smooth, delicious wines. And they are extremely value-oriented. Don't pass up their wines. Raise a glass!
