smasne-cellars-logo-blackEvery year, Robert Smasne moves up in our blind tastings. The grapes for this Cab come from Snipes Mountain, where some of the oldest vines in the Pacific Northwest were planted. This features aromas of cedar, chocolate and mint, followed by flavors of cherry, blackberry, blueberry and chocolate. It’s a broad-shouldered wine with assertive tannins that are matched by the fruit and acidity.
