Clearwater Canyon Cellars 2014 Coco’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Lewis-Clark Valley, $42

By on November 28, 2017

Coco Umiker, a recent recipient of Washington State University’s Distinguished Alumni Award, focused on the Lewis-Clark Valley for her reserve-tier Cabernet Sauvignon. The blend of three vineyards – Rock n’ J, Arnett and Umiker Estate – spans both Washington and Idaho and spent 22 months in 30% new American oak. Its distinctive theme of dusty black cherry, black currant and cola comes with delicious intensity that’s approachable and ageworthy. The beautiful balance and subtle finish allows for undertones of mint, basil and lavender. This merited a gold medal at 2017 Cascadia International Wine Competition.
