Borne Of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Borne Of Fire|
Just bottled, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon The Burn checks in as a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Zinfandel, which is a variety you don't see much in Washington. It's healthy ruby/purple color is followed by a seamless, balanced, downright delicious red that has loads of sweet red and blue fruits, hints of spring flowers, medium body, no hard edges, and a great texture. I don't think it's going to make old bones but it's a great value to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years (and I wouldn't be surprised to see it keep longer).
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has a fruity nose with a mineral core. The wine is open-knit and pleasurable on the palate, and the finish is open and long, with hints of spicy aromatics and dusty dark cherries. With 33,000 cases made, this is a good value at this price.
