Wine Each Week ~ Dixie & Bass 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

Proof that Cabernet need not be expensive, this delightful Cab from the Columbia Valley in Washington state clocks in at just $18. It will have you scratching your head - is it really this good? Comprised of all Cabernet with 10% Malbec, it offers notes of blueberry, boysenberry, subtle black cherry, even more subtle mocha with light, but nicely integrated, oak notes and mild tannins. The structure is solid and gives a pleasant mouth feel. What it gets right is that simple tactile pleasurable feel of drinking a wine that tastes really, really good. Aged 16 months in just 25% new American oak, the wood doesn’t overpower the wine. 1120 cases ORIGIN: Columbia Valley, Washington ALCOHOL: 14% PRICE: $18/750 ml SCORE: 90 POINTS
