Wine Details

Lot 534 launches with a lovely display of spring flowers paired with ripe, dark blackberry notes and cassis wrapped in toasty mocha oak and just a hint of mint. With a little air, distinctive graphite and forest floor notes add additional complexity. Ripe and seamless on the mid-palate, with rich sappy fruit deftly balanced against velvety tannins in a long, lush, seamless, vanilla-kissed finish.

Cam Confidential

Sourced from the cellars of a single high-end Walla Walla winery, this Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of fruit from some of the best vineyards (i.e. Obelisco, Heather Hill, Seven Hills) in the best appellations for Cabernet in the state (Red Mountain [50%], Walla Walla [32%], and Horse Heaven Hills [18%]). Effectively, the Washington equivalent of Napa Valley’s Oakville/Rutherford/St. Helena nexus. Meticulously crafted and aged in 80% new French oak, this gorgeous Cabernet is the same wine the winery offers at well over $40/bottle. With the previously released vintage scoring a 92 from Parker, I think it’s fair to say this is a screaming deal.

It is a pity this is out of stock. This wine is an everyday favorite for my family. Full flavored, especially the second day of opening it. Washington state wines are becoming second to Napa.

Hard to beat for the price. Let it air out for a few hours, and you'll be rewarded with with layers of dark fruit flavors and notes of chocolate, balanced with supple tannins.

I've had quite a few Washington cabs and this one will definitely appease to people used to napa cab but also looking for something not so rough. no need to age this one for 10 years before being drinkable but def give it some air in the decanter for at least 30.

This is an amazing wine under $20. Great nose, smooth drinking, and wonderful fruit.

How I miss the manly Cabernet Sauvignons of yore-- the broad-shouldered, square-jawed Cabs that tasted like they were trellised on barbed wire and picked by felons on work release! But alas, Californian winemaking has largely surrendered its man-card in favor of gender-neutral reds better paired with tofu than steak. Who knew that Washington State would fill the void? Bin 534 Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley meets the need perfectly-- with big, chewy tannins that soften overnight, deep and rich layers of cassis, and a minty finale reminiscent of Napa's Heitz Cellar at its glorious peak. Show this gem some air the day before and then pair it with an angus or wagyu ribeye from the grill.

Haven't had a bottle of Reds from CH which I haven't enjoyed.

I like to open these bottles an hour before pouring. Cant find a better bottle under $20 for a week day dinner pairing

This Columbia Valley Cab is as good as ones I’ve had from renowned vineyards costing at least 3 times as much. One of the best wines for the price I have found. Just placed my 3rd order.
