2009 Columbia Crest Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
|For $11.99 at Costco, there’s a lot to like here. I’m a fan of Washington State Cabs so I am a little jaded, but I think this is a wonderful Cab for the money. |
The nose just starts things off right – it’s fresh and earthy; then this wine gets really enjoyable on the palate, rather light in body (for a Cab) but packs a flavorful punch, a little spice, more earthiness, and ripe cherry flavors. The finish is a little on the quick side, which is probably the only aspect of this wine I didn’t enjoy.
But this bottle is a great buy at Costco for $11.99, and a good representation of Washington State Cabs priced on the value side of things.
