Leathery, fresh tobacco aromatics and flavors of juicy blueberry, black cherry, and mineral driven notes are supported by refined silky tannins in this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. The finish is rich and lingering, and while it is drinkable now, it will continue to improve with age over the next few years. This wine is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Syrah. It is aged 23 months in 25% new oak. This Columbia Valley Reserve is a wonderful complement to grilled meats or prime rib.
The Waterbrook Reserve is available at the FO Costco at $17.99 and is well worth the investment for that special meal. This wine is priced in the range of $22 – $25 at other outlets.
