Without a doubt, the State of Washington is producing some terrific wines, and you savvy wine sleuths should definitely pay heed. Exhibit A is the Columbia Crest 2013 Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon, which is an delicious medium-bodied Cab that is widely distributed. I picked up hints of cocoa, blueberries and blackberries, with a noticeable but delicious oak overtone. Not overly tannic, this is an everyday Cab that can be served as on its own, or it would be a delicious pairing with a grilled filet or even a pork tenderloin. The Columbia Crest offering rewards with true Cabernet pleasure at the bargain bin suggested retail price of $12 per bottle! Wine Enthusiast magazine named this wine its Number 7 on the Top 100 Best Buys and bestowed a solid 90 rating on it! This Washington product would make an excellent Big Red house wine at this remarkable price. Think of this wine as the anti-Napa Cab!
