Columbia Crest Reserve 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, $27.99, 91 points, is, at least others have told me, comparable to the famous 2005 vintage, which Wine Spectator rated the top of the 100, 2009 wines.
There is a complexity with this Cabernet, but I found it just a bit unbalanced, though the aroma is beautiful, the color deep ruby, and the flavor and texture is rich and lush, with a long pepper finish.
This is a worthy wine, and I recommend it, because it is unique and fresh, with interesting berry notes.
However it is a bit pricey; if you are like me, you'll skip two or three day's worth of "regular wine-fare" to try this, if you can find it.
