2009 Novelty Hill Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
A very enjoyable expression of Cabernet from Washington’s Columbia Valley, and really a great wine for Costco’s $19.99 price tag.
This is a big red, full bodied and just causes you think “wow” instantly. Predominantly dark fruit, some cherry flavor with a little leather, tobacco and herb. The finish adds spicy notes, and it’s elegant mouthfeel just makes it a joy to drink, even without food which it would complement to no end.
Got even better with some air. A nice all around Cab from the Northwest (and I love my Northwest wines).
