Natalie's Score: 89/100

Coffee, mocha and dark chocolate on the nose from toasty oak aging. Fleshy blackberries and round, black plums on the palate of this delicious, full-bodied red wine. Smooth and supple. This is the Pacific Northwest’s largest winery, but it also produces some of the region's best wines. Highly recommended.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pepper steak, hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, smoked meats, hamburger.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
