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).
We really enjoyed this cab. It paired great with our ribeye dinner!
Like others are saying, I did decant for 2-3 hours. this wine is dry, but got better as it sat for awhile.
Red Mountain is a hot spot for Washington st.
I would try it.
Nice everyday cab; good/great value 3 1/2 stars
Dry, smooth, lovely bouquet of mild oak and gardenias. This is a wine I would not hesitate to aerate in a blender soon after opening if I did not want to wait before serving. If you have not done the blender aeration, it sounds awful. But if you open a bottle and try the wine, then put the rest in a blender for about 8 - 10 seconds, you will be amazed how it opened up. However, I would not do this with a 2011 CH Private Reserve cab.
Took other's advice and decanted 4hrs. Opened up nicely.
Quality Cabernet for the Price
The Red Mountain iterations are consistently winners for me as they provide just the right amount of flavor, structure at this price point. Good value. I love this one with steak as it seems to compliment it better than even the higher priced cabs.
Good cab, but I am spoiled from Cam's other amazing conquests. This wine is a bight tight so decant for a while.
I love Red Mountain fruit and will always pick up a syrah/cab from the region. The trick is finding one that has a nice rounded profile and not too much of the 'blue' fruits that it makes the wine taste bland. This wine straddles that balance, but with a 2+ hour decant it comes around. Nice wine, but have enjoyed other CH WA cabernets more.
Very nice, after decanting
I let it air based on some of the reviews and it made a difference. Nice, structured cab.
Very good but not great. I thought it was a little thin. The Walla Walla cab was much better.
A bold red that was delicious. Truly enjoyable.
