Cave B Estate Winery 2012 XXVII Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $48

By on September 13, 2016

cave-b-cabSince taking over as head winemaker in 2007, Freddy Arredondo has shown his talents in the cellar by raising the profile of this longtime winery near the town of George. This Cabernet Sauvignon uses estate grapes in the Ancient Lakes, and it provides complex aromas of perfumy oak, ginger, violet and cherry, followed by flavors of sweet oak, blackberry, raspberry and cocoa powder. A juicy midpalate is backed by firm tannins and a refined note of dark chocolate. This won gold and best of class at the 2016 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival wine competition.
