2007 Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley)

Dark hue of purple all the way to the rim. The nose has hints of currant and plums but lots of cedar and blackberry. Across the plate more blackberry, licorice tar and oaky tannins. Intensely concentrated but not overly extracted. The fruit for this blend comes from a who’s-who of premium Columbia Valley vineyards such as Stillwater Creek, Alder Ridge in the Horse Heaven Hills and Klipsun Vineyard on Red Mountain. Very good but needs a little more bottle time. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc; 1% Petit Verdot
