Buried Cane Columbia Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Buried Cane Columbia Valley 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, $10.79-$14.99, 87 points, appeared an opaque maroon trending purple red near the clear rim-ring with considerable draping.
Profuse blueberry with hints of cedar and a floral component on the nose were quite good.
Full-bodied with fair acidity and moderate silky tannins made for a lush mouth-feel.
Loads of blueberries, black currant, and blackberry cordial were accented with licorice, accelerating spice, and cola notes.
Finished long on that blackberry cordial (13.8% alcohol) and licorice, with a hint of spearmint.
Varietals were 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot.
Wow! What a contrast to the Marquis de Chasse Bordeaux.
