A firm tannic grip on this big Washington state red wine. Cellar a few years then decant 2 hours and pair with a rare steak. Aromas of black fruit and toasty oak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: prime rib roast, gourmet hamburgers, Salisbury steak.

Reviews and Ratings

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, fermented with wild, native yeasts and age in French oak. This is an elegant, smoky Cab Sauv with black plum, currants and spice. Tannins are firm and grippy. Decant an hour prior to serving. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
