Now as an official pin wearing member of the Level One Court of Master Sommeliers, I feel like I can come to this blog with more perspective, more expertise, and more ideas for pairings. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to pursue a wine education and plan to continue.
Anyways, I know have a little Washington gem that I am really enjoying. This would be from the Precept Wine Group who has Waterbrook, House Wines, Canoe Ridge, and many others. Browne Family Cabernet really shines. The current release is 2008 and is 90% Cab with some petit verdot and cab franc to round it out. Unlike a Napa Valley cab, you aren't going to get a huge nose of dark chocolate, but more refined fruit, and dark cherry. I definitely recommend laying this one down, or decanting before drinking. Try this one with a flank steak, seasoned with the basics: salt and pepper. Best part? Less than $30. And very well worth it.
Cheers until next time!
