April 7, 2014 - Agree with previous review except when he said it is about time to drink, it is full on ready. Tremendous improvement from a year ago. Drinks far above price.

April 6, 2014 - This bottle the wine has opened up greatly. Lots of sweet mocha on the front with a bit of green pepper and vanilla. The finish is dry with underlying fruit, but a great long medium and dry black tea tannin.
Its just about time to seriously start to consume this wine.

(Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills) A moderately aromatic wine with dust, mocha, cherry cola, and dark cherries. The palate is full of chocolate and cherry flavors with chalky tannins and a tart, slightly attenuated finish. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Syrah, and 2% Malbec. Aged 18 months in French oak (40% new). 14.5% alcohol. Recommended
