Red Mountain reigns supreme in Washington wine when it comes to wines of structure and intensity – a tiny AVA with only about 1500 acres planted, the well-drained loess soils of this region produce tight clusters and small berries, which in turn make for powerful, intense reds.
Made with all the bells and whistles and aged with approximately 50% new French oak, Lot 660 is the Reserve Cabernet offering and flagship cuvee of the same pioneering winery that produced Lot 575 Red Blend (98/94-point scores, Double Gold/Platinum medals galore).
Needed more time
Needed more time. Only ordered one and should have let it sit for a few years probably.
Great color. Notes of red fruit, nutmeg, stone and bret. Full of flavor and dry. I will hold on to a few of these as well. Should age beautifully.
Getting better with age
I have a few of these left so I thought it was time to try. It is definitely getting better but still needs more time in the bottle. I will try again next year. I still like lot 628 from Walla Walla as best Washington Cab from 2016
Very dark red core. Noticeable Washington terrior, dusty green vegetal notes and spicy wood aromas giving way to sweeter dark berry, dried cherries, coffee bean and mushroom. Seems to want to offer more aroma but even with a 2 hour decant and lots of time in the glass this is still quite tight. Tannin o' plenty! Good acidity and balanced sweetness. A touch of cigar box, currant, black cherry, dark chocolate and pepper. Might be blended with petite sirah (explains the color). Would probably go good with spicy Korean or Thai BBQ.
CH value showing through
Opened a bottle several nights ago. Always decant. As result no tightness in this wine at all. Great value. Worth 3X that. Will let the other two sit for a couple more years. Expect great things from those two.
This is the first CH wine out of about ten I have purchased that didn’t impress me for the price point. Perhaps I should have opened a little earlier but I gave it a good 90 minutes. It wasn’t a bad wine but seemed lacking of fruit up front and had very short finish. It was a little better by end of bottle. I have a few more bottles but will probably wait awhile to revisit.
As a huge cab fan, I really enjoyed this wine. This was everything I was hoping it would be!
Really enjoyed this wine. When it’s back in stock will be buying again.
Best Cab at Cam
While other Cabs come and go, the Red Mountain Cab is still around, and still as delicious as ever.
Another great cab
CH hits the nail on the head with this one. This California Cabernet is everything you expect it to be and more.
