Columbia-Crest Horse Heaven Hills 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $11.99-$14.99, 87 points, appeared opaque at the core trending deep black currant purple/red with a transparent rim at the leggy glass wall.
Smells a bit like sweet purple-grape with hints of cedar, black cherry, and glycerin.
Brightly acidic with slightly astringent tannin, the medium-plus body was juicy and carried notable chocolate notes with blackberry and boysenberry.
Finished fair with some heat (14.5 alcohol), spice, and eucalyptus.
