Palouse Winery 2010 Red Satin Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington, $36

By on May 9, 2014

palouse-winery-red-satin-cabernet-sauvignon-labelThis Vashon Island winery produced about 40 percent less of this Cab from Dineen Vineyard than it did from the prior vintage, and that’s a shame. Its aromas create thoughts of black plums, dark cherry, brown sugar and complex spices. There’s a boldness to the entry of cassis, plum juice and pomegranate, which leads to a midpalate of allspice and pepper. Fine-grained tannins akin to plum skin and well-handled acidity give this extension. This wine earned a gold medal at the 2014 Capital Food and Wine Festival Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 90 cases

Alcohol: 13.8%
