hudson-shah-cab-cabernet-sauvignon-nv-bottleBest Buy! A native of Alsace, Jean Claude Beck continues his string of success at The Woodhouse Wine Estates with this remarkably complex and restrained Old World-style Cab under the Woodinville company’s Marketplace tier. Aromas of red currant, Craisins, green peppercorn, rose petal and eucalyptus are matched on the palate with support from pleasing acidity and smooth and slaty tannins. The finish carries hints of black cherries, plum and baking spice. Enjoy with a lean steak such as a New York strip.
