silver-lake-winery-reserve-cabernet-sauvignon-bottleThis fall, this longtime Woodinville winery will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its inaugural release, and this Cab from its estate Roza Hills Vineyard is certainly not priced in line with most reserve-style offerings. The nose carries hints of cinnamon, black cherry, plum, vanilla and cedar, while the smooth fluid flows with flavors of plum sauce and pie cherry acidity with reduced tannins. It received a silver medal at the 2014 Seattle Wine & Food Experience Wine Competition.
