Goose Ridge Estate Winery 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $38

By on March 21, 2018

This winery near Richland has North Central Washington connections through its Leavenworth tasting room. Using grapes from its estate vineyard in Goose Gap – the largest in the state at 1,600 acres – the ripe flavors of dried cherries, spiced jerky and leather leap off the palate, followed by flavors of black cherry, blackberry and a hint of anise. Rather, it is suave and well-crafted. Won gold and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 425 cases

Alcohol: 15.6%
