61. Ambassador Vineyard 2010 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Mountain, $35

ambassador-cabAmbassador is earning a reputation as one of Red Mountain’s top vineyards, and now its estate bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon is showing off the prowess of its resulting wines. The grapes are managed by Dick Boushey, and the wines are crafted by Sarah Goedhart of the Hedges family. This was one of the top red wines in the Great Northwest Invite, thanks to aromas and flavors of dusty sage, Rainier cherry, dark chocolate, ripe plum and black pepper. It’s all backed with firm tannins – a classic Red Mountain trait.
