Camaraderie Cellars 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, $29

By on January 26, 2022

Olympic Peninsula winemaker Don Corson uses this nicely aged Cabernet Sauvignon to earn the urban geographer’s third Platinum in two years, and his second with Cab. The University of Oregon graduate’s program for Cabernet Sauvignon drills down on two of Washington state’s historic vineyards — Sagemoor’s Dionysus along the White Bluffs and Upland on historic Snipes Mountain. The profile exudes grace from start to finish, stringing along remarkable aromatics of cassis, boysenberry, graphite and moist earth, a combination that’s carried along to the palate where well-managed tannins make for a rewarding experience. It proved to be one of the classiest Cabs of this judging. Award: Seattle Wine Awards (double gold).
