K&L Notes

The Substance Cab from K Vintners is an exemplary bottling showing how impressive even entry level price point Washington Cabs can be. As Jeb Dunnuck suggests: "Just pretend you paid three times the price." This is a fantastic value wine that would easily be $30 if it came from California, but still carries all the hallmark Cab flavors of red and black fruits, cedar, and herbs.

    Another year and another rocking wine from Charles Smith and crew. Yet again the Substance Cab delivers unbeatable value in rich, fruit forward, approachable Cabernet. A more "typical" growing season in 2017 after the record breaking heat and drought of 2016 has produced a wine with a little more restraint than previous iterations, but there is certainly no shortage of varietal Cabernet expression - black/red currant, bramble, mocha, shaved cedar and some sweet oak spice to round it out. A lot of wine for the money...sure to be another huge customer favorite again this year.

    For true Cab flavor at an unbelievable price, look no further! This gorgeous 2017 is brimming with fruit and spice while remaining wonderfully restrained. Ready to drink now, it shows a classic Columbia Valley profile of wildflowers, cassis, pipe tobacco, vanillin, along with a hint of savory herb. K Vintners has served up another blockbuster red value. Go ahead and load up, as this is the perfect pick to come back to again and again.

    Another winner for the "CS" label from Wines of Substance, the 2017 shows some superb restraint and refinement compared to the more full-throttle (but delicious) 2015 and 2016 that preceded it. Deep and pure cherry aromas with hints of chocolate lead to a silky palate full of classic, deep Cab flavors of cassis, framboise, and fine vanilla-tinged tannins. All-too-easy to drink, it is a lot of wine for the money and very delicious right out of the gates, even at this early stage.
