"This is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three time the price." Jeb Dunnuck

Like last vintage, we cannot believe the value of this amazing Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington that keeps getting better and better with every release. This IS a no-brainer!

Our enthusiasm remains the same...

What do you pour when guests, relatives and colleagues of all wine drinking levels drop in to raise a glass or join you for a barbecue? Without hesitation, you pour the 2016 "Cs" Cabernet Sauvignon.

"It way over-delivers for the price" with "incredibly high quality." Wine Advocate

The 2016 Cs Cabernet Sauvignon is breed from team K Vintners (Charles Smith). With the bold fruit, texture and structure of a wine priced significantly higher, this is your new “go to” Cabernet.

What we love most about this wine is its plum, cassis, layered fruit and silky yet textured tannins. You can enjoy it with hand-passed hors d'oeuvres, grilled burgers, your favorite cut of steak, or simply with a wedge of cheese.

This should be purchased by the case(s). While supplies last. Enjoy!

$14.34 per bottle / $172.08 per case

Summary


THE WINE ADVOCATE

93 / 100

"The deep, inky-colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that will see 12 months in French oak. It offers terrific notes of cassis, blueberries, violets and wood smoke, medium to full body, ripe tannin and a classy finish. It way over-delivers for the price. It's worth pointing out that this cuvee comes mostly from vineyards planted, and farmed, by Charles Smith and Brennan Leighton; this undoubtedly contributes to the incredibly high quality."

JEB DUNNUCK

93 / 100

"Aged 13 months in barrels, its vibrant purple color is followed by a terrific bouquet of blueberries, cassis, scorched earth, and spice. Deep, rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is the real deal, ladies and gentlemen, and it's a no-brainer purchase. Just pretend you paid three times the price."
