Northstar Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
Medium ruby. Perfumed aromas of cherry, redcurrant, rose petal and spices. Dry, suave and refined, showing modest power but lovely floral lift to its flavors of black- and redcurrant. This very laid-back, classy wine shows little in the way of easy sweetness but finishes with smooth tannins and sneaky length. A very sophisticated Washington Cabernet with excellent delineation. (14.5% alcohol)
Plush and polished, driven by a refined structure, offering elegant blackberry, espresso and spice flavors that take up speed on the long finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,128 cases made.
Ripe blueberries, cassis, toasted spice, and candied violet notes all emerge from the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon. Made from 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot, it's medium to full-bodied, with a layered, seamless texture and a great finish. This is a classic, impeccably made Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Brooding aromas of dark fruit, char and spice are followed by velvety bittersweet chocolate, cherry and mocha flavors that linger on the persistent finish. The enjoyment is as much about feel as flavor.
The 2015 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits notes of smoky red-black fruit, cigar wrapper and loamy soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy. It's going to require some patience, but the tannins are not overly aggressive or drying.
