Glaze 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $15

By on May 3, 2013

Washington wineBest Buy! Our judging panel blind tasted this wine in January alongside 130 other Northwest Cabernet Sauvignons. It scored our top “Outstanding” rating – and does so again three months later in another blind tasting by the Great Northwest Wine editors. For us, this has a lot of “Wow” by showing that kind of high-quality consistence. This wine is made by Ross Mickel of Ross Andrew Winery in Woodinville, Wash., and it’s marketed by Precept Wine in Seattle. It’s a rich, fresh wine with aromas of black plum, minerality, dark chocolate and black pepper. On the palate, it is approachable now, thanks to mild tannins and round flavors of chocolate, black cherry and bright acidity. This affordable Cab has a high yummy factor.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 1,200 cases

Alcohol: 13.7%
