    The 2016 Substance Cab from K Vintners is yet again an exemplary bottling showing how impressive even entry level price point Washington Cabs can be. Packed with black and blue fruit, currant leaf, cigar box, dried herbs and spice. Lovely varietal definition, refined tannins and plush texture. As Jeb Dunnuck suggests: “Just pretend you paid three times the price.”

    The last few years this has been one of the best value Cabs in the store and I adore the new 2016. It is a big, rich style of Cabernet that shows it's Washington roots. But what the 2016 achieves over the 2015 is a touch more balance and tension at a young age. And make no mistakes, at $15 most of these will be opened early so that accessibility is a big win. Packed with deep red and black fruit, it carries notes of chocolate, sage, and vanilla. It that perfect punches-above-its-weight domestic Cabernet that's often sought and rarely found. If this was from California it would easily be $30. Simply put, it's hard to find this much wine for $15, just one of the reasons it is a bottle I find myself going back to again and again.
