$20 Below Wines
Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon, Horse Heaven Hills, 2009
Price: Suggested retail is $15.00 (although I’ve often seen this wine on sale from $11.00 – $13.00)
Impressions: Aroma of black currant, with a bit of smoke and pencil shavings. Blackberry and oak is plentiful in the mouth. Drinks like a cab 2x to 3x the price and definitely one of the better cabs that I’ve had in this price range.
Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry Riesling, Columbia Valley, 2010
Price: Suggested retail is $9.00
Impressions: Green apple was abundant on the nose and the mouth. Nice floral notes and minerality with mouth-watering acidity and a touch of sweetness on the finish. At $9.00, this wine is a killer deal.
