It shouldn’t really be any surprise that great Cabernet wine is made in both places. Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon makes deep, purple colored wines, with definitive dark-fruit and herbal varietal character. While they are appealing for that dark fruit in their youth, they have the structure to age remarkably in the bottle.
