one more from the owen roe selection tasting i was at recently. all grapes are from the columbia valley in washington. the nose is full of ripe blueberries, dark cherry and black currant. got some nice smokey notes on the nose too. the palate has blackberry and licorice notes up front and the finish had some interesting cigar flavors. there was a little cedar in there as well. this is a nicely structured cab. not too big like some of the california cabs can be. this one sells for about $20. i am thinking grilled steak or burgers with this one.
