Requiem
Varietal: Cabernet
Vintage: 2016
Country of Origin: Washington
Appellation: Columbia Valley
Retail Price: $19.99

Tasting Notes: I’m not sure the guys at Banshee make a bad wine. Their new project out of Washington is setting the bar high. Somehow they have packed fruit from Champoux, Wallula, Sevein and Loess Vineyards into a $20 wine. Aromas of dark berry, cedar and plum on the nose with chocolate, blackberry and a nice earthy funk on the nose. Wow!

Varietal: Cabernet
Vintage: 2014
Country of Origin: California
Appellation: Napa Valley
Retail Price: $55

Tasting Notes: This complex Napa cabernet sauvignon offers extracted rich fruit flavors of currant, cassis, black cherry and blackberry. There is a hefty mouthfeel mid-palate giving way to some rustic flavors, black licorice, kirsch and spice. The finish lingers with a fair amount of tannins. Ready to drink now, but will age well for another seven years.
