Substance Cs Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Jeb DunnuckThe base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it's a value that's hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It's the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price.
Wine SpectatorPrecise and vibrantly structured, with black cherry, espresso and spice flavors that take on richness toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Cs Cabernet Sauvignon has an open core of good, juicy black fruit with a soft but classic focus of blackberries, cherries and subtle black plum. The flavors continue on the medium-bodied palate with pleasurable yet straightforward expressions for this keenly priced Cabernet. The wine delivers pleasure on the finish with a focus on healthy fruit. Priced under $20, this is a solid buy. 130,000+ cases produced.
Wine EnthusiastDistracting aromas of mesquite smoke and char are followed by notes of cherry and herb. Sleek but plentiful plum and smoke flavors follow. The tannins give a light grip.
