CANVASBACK Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

(Red Mountain, Washington State) $34

If you love red wine, then you’ll want to know about Red Mountain. The region may be tiny, but the wines are most definitely big. In fact, this is where some of Washington’s most powerful Cabernets are made— Cabs packed with exploding flavor and soaring tannin. Canvasback makes one of the best, and the wine overdelivers for the price. The layers of blackberry, lavender, graphite, spice, and earth notes are delicious. The texture is smooth and muscular.  One sip of this wine will have you craving a thick grilled steak. Red Mountain is more of a large hill than a mountain, and it isn’t really red (although the cheatgrass that also grows there can look reddish in the spring). But for any wine drinker who wants their reds to have real gravitas, Red Mountain is a place to know. 15% abv
