A Columbia, Washington 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a good fit for a young cab. Lately I have not been a cab lover. Overproduction, overrated and the grape is taken too seriously for my tastes. The wine experts always go all poetic over this grape. Not to mention the inflated prices.
After all that, for $7.50 this ain’t too bad.Columbia Crest 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
I like it. Not pretentious. Just a strong cab sauv, pronounced tannins. Berry flavors. A little flat on finish, but it’s a big production wine, so this is expected. Consumer Reports rated it highly that’s why we tasted it. It is what it is. And for what it is it’s pretty good actually.
