53. Dunham Cellars 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon XVIII, Columbia Valley, $45

dunham-cabDunham Cellars built this elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley fruit, checking all the correct boxes for black cherry, blackberry, blueberry and huckleberry aromas and flavors. Its structure and backbone are flawless, and its finish is long and deep, with just-right tannins to close it out. The Dunham Cellars 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon also won a gold medal in the Great Northwest Wine Competition in March, so winemaker Dan Wampfler is showing remarkable consistency.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 2,180 cases
