Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This wine was named after the wild mustangs, which typically measured ‘14 hands’ in height, that once roamed the rolling hills rising up from the Columbia River. Aged for approximately 12 months in a combination of American and French oak, this Cab features classic black-fruit aromas. Its flavors of cherries and spice are accentuated by fine, supple tannins. My note: A lovely, medium-bodied Cabernet that's balanced and subtle. Plums will burst in your mouth. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb, turkey.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I love wines from the Washington State, and this one doesn't disappoint. It's a blend of mostly Merlot, Syrah and Cabarnet Sauvignon and it was so easy to drink. Fruity flavours of cherries and black currant, I also detected a hint of chocolate. I will definitely buy this wine again.
