Best Buy! Perhaps it’s the magic of pixie dust from the region around tiny Paterson, Wash., where Snoqualmie’s Joy Andersen made this 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from organic Columbia Valley grapes. Whatever the source, this Ste. Michelle Wine Estates product stands out for its spicy black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors, backed by chalky tannins and a delicate layer of chocolate in the finish. This won a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.
