Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery.

Washington Cabernet Best Buys

Some might refer to these as value wines, but, believe me, they are not the bargain basement wines you might expect. These are excellent wines at any price and, in fact, some of them have garnered "90 point " ratings. Where in California or Australia, or France, for that matter, can you get such good wines for the price. These are definitely not with Yellowtail , Two Buck Chuck or Searidge. Novelty Hill and Gordon Brothers are actually real bargains at about $20/bottle. These wine are seamless with lots of great flavor. Barnard Griffin , Red Diamond, Hogue, Sagelands, Goose Ridge and Columbia Crest are somewhat less complex, but still great at $7-$15. Where else in the world can you find such good Cabernet for so little money?

    Matt and I are fans of the Sagelands Cabernet. Good stuff. We'll have to check out the Gordon Brothers. We haven't tried that one yet.
