nine hats wines cabernet sauvignon 2015 bottle - Nine Hats Wines 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $25The creative juices of the Long Shadows Vintners team bottle this Cab that blends from The Benches in the Horse Heaven Hills and Weinbau on the warm Wahluke Slope, injecting some Syrah (15%). Twenty months in French oak results in a nose of toffee and coffee powder with blue fruit and a dusting of white pepper. There’s richness to the entry of plum and blueberry, backed by pomegranate juiciness that finishes with a long and strong tug of tannins. This marks the first summer for the Nine Hats tasting room in SoDo, and this Cab screams for a slice of Gran Turismo at Nine Pies Pizzeria next door.
