This is the perfect mix of big fruit that you expect from Washington and the savoury notes that keep it interesting. It's big and ripe with a bit of baking spice, but there's a big earthy, funky (in a really good way) quality to this wine. Big acid and tannin for this price, it tastes like it should be a lot more expensive, plus the finish is quite long. This is one serious, tasty bottle of wine. Don't pass it up. Tasted October 2014.
a big bold cab from walla walla Washington, earthy, firm tannins for sure, reminds me a bit of the piedmont gang but not as dusty or as sour cherish, a bit fruity but not fruit bomb, great buy for $22, will be interesting to see how it ages over the next few years, szabo seems to feel that it will do well!
A quality cab with some kick to it
Description: Medium+ ruby in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features cedar, dark and sour cherries, plums, red currents, thyme, cassis, turmeric, graphite, Allspice, cinnamon, cloves, peppers and leather. Full body with medium+ tannins, good acidity, a long length and the alcohol is well integrated.
Interesting Note: Same wine sells for $45 at the winery
Drink now or in the next 10 years on its own or pair it with Pan-Roasted Veal Chops with Cabernet Sauce.
