COLUMBIA CREST 2012 CABERNET SAUVIGNON "H3" HORSE HEAVEN HILLS 750mL

We've long been fans of Columbia Crest, one of Washington State's premiere wineries, known for both handcrafted, superior-quality small-lot wines and affordable, everyday Washington quaffers. So where does "H3" fall? Well, the price says everyday and affordable but, we must confess, the juice in the bottle has us leaning toward the superior side of the above descriptor-- it's a fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon that we believe people will fall in love with, especially as a "go to" Cab for the holidays.

The nose is a nice blend of sweet brown spices, black cherry, a little cherry cola and a touch of vanilla-- very approachable. The palate keeps with the cherry fruit theme and adds a touch of cedar and subtle dusty earth, all lifted by a nice layer of acidity. The finish is brief but tasty. With a latitude similar to Bordeaux, and long days of sunshine leading to excellent ripeness of fruit, clearly it's not just the horses who've found heaven in the hills of Washington.
