The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley displays aromas of cedar, spice box, tobacco, violets, and black currants. Forward on the palate with an elegant personality, this tasty, well-balanced effort is meant for drinking over the next 6-7 years. It is a very good value. ”

Bright and expressive, offering a velvety mouthful of raspberry, cherry, blackberry and sage flavors, finishing with a hint of smoke. Shows depth and persistence. Drink now through 2018.—H.S.
