Steak House 2012 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. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "It brings a Northwest Cabernet profile of black currant, plum, licorice and light herbs with medium-bodied feel. A touch of sweetness rounds out the finish."
