March is Washington Wine month. Washington State has a rich winemaking tradition, rivaling California in its quality and innovation. With more than 750 wineries and 350 wine grape growers, it is the second largest premium wine producer in the U.S.
Experience all the Evergreen State has to offer by raising a glass to Washington wine with one of these outstanding Cabernets:
Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet was created to celebrate the winery’s rich heritage in the Horse Heaven Hills as well as its innovative winemaking and viticulture practices. This bold Cab delivers aromas of dark fruit and currants with a balance of earth, deep berry flavors and touches of cocoa in its finish.
Columbia Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon
This bold style Cabernet Sauvignon displays great complexity and structure. There are aromas of dark berry fruits and plum on the nose with chocolate and vanilla on the palate. The ripe, sweet, okay tannins are balanced by lovely fruit complexity. This wine pairs well with beef tenderloin or heartier fare.
You can find these, as well as selections from other great Washington State winemakers like Chateau Ste. Michelle, 14 Hands, and Charles Smith, at Wyatt’s Wet Goods. With their superior selection and knowledgeable staff, you can find something for all budgets and tastes.
