COLUMBIA CREST Cabernet Sauvignon 'Crowdsourced' 2014

Columbia Crest has created this wine through the ideas articulated by their online community, and the inaugural vintage is a huge success. The 2014 'Crowdsourced' Cabernet by Columbia Crest is an excellent bottling, sourced from the Horse Heaven Hills, that sat 16 months in 30% new oak barrels prior to bottling. Coming from a great vintage for Cabernet, the wine is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Merlot. This wine opens with aromas of black tea, coffee grounds and black cherries with black olive accents. The palate has a lovely mineral streak, with rich flavors of black olive, black cherry, anise and coffee grounds. Overall, this Cabernet shows nice poise considering the warm vintage.
