Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon Washington State Red Wine 750 mL
93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (previous vintage)
“The base 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant, and as Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a value that’s
hard to beat! Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from
this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate.
It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price.”
In an attempt to simplify the K Vintners lineup, Charles Smith created the Wines of Substance label in 2017 and moved all of the Bordeaux varieties under this umbrella. As with the K Vintners wines, these are terrific wines that more than over deliver at their price point. All of the wines see small batch fermentations, native yeast, aging in barrel, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. – Jeb Dunnuck, Latest Releases from Washington State, April 5, 2018
