Steak House 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley
Here's a wine created and launched by the inimitable Charles Smith of K Vineyards fame. Since his wines are generally very limited creating the House wine brand was his way of bringing a popularly priced wine to the market that could be enjoyed widely. Columbia Valley of course has ample, good quality Cabernet and grapes are sourced from some of the best growers in the region. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Named a Best Buy by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "The notes of ash, cherry, and plum are faint and soft in feel but itís well priced for the quality and delivers enough tannic heft to live up to its name."
