Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon

United States · Washington

 

With fruit-forward flavors of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry, as well as chocolate, leather, graphite, mint and dried herbs.

Washington Cabs are supple and velvety in texture, and pair beautifully with braised short ribs, veal chops, lamb shanks, roasted winter vegetables and, of course, burgers.

Cabernet Sauvignon leads the charge in Washington State—it is currently the most widely planted red wine grape in the Evergreen State with just over 10,000 acres in production.

While Washington's growing regions are varied geologically speaking, many are thought to be premium sites that are well-suited to hearty varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet grown in Washington has been celebrated as having the perfect combination of ripeness of fruit that California Cabernet possesses with the finesse and structure of Old World Cabernet (think Bordeaux) As the new kid on the block ,it's not yet as expensive as California Cab and is a great starting point to learn the varietal.

Top AVAs (American Viticultural Area) to explore in Washington are Walla Walla, Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills. A budget-conscious shopper can find excellent Cabernet Sauvignon for well under $20.
