During book club last night one of the bottles opened was a 2006 Columbia Crest Cabernet. It was delicious. Fabulous aroma and a deep ruby color. It was smooth to the taste. I paired it with some fabulous cheeses (Gouda and Grayson) and fresh fruit. Delicious. This is a great bottle for under $10. I've had other years of this blend and it is consistently a great drink.
I need to go exploring more down the "Washington" isle at my favorite wine shop to see what other great bottle I can find. Do you have a favorite Washington wine? If so, let me know.
