2018 Pendulum Cabernet Sauvignon

 
Wine Spectator wines rated 90 to 94 points are “Outstanding: A wine of superior character and style.” Wine Spectator rated this wine – a Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington’s Columbia Valley – 91 points. One retailer’s review: “Full-bodied without being too boozy . . . . Sourced from some of the best vineyards in Washington: Browne Family, Blackrock, Mirage, Skyfall, and Canyon Vineyard Ranch. . . . Loaded with notes of ripe blueberries, black plum and baking spices, there are pronounced flavors of black cherry and toasty oak. If this was made in Napa Valley instead of Washington State, it would easily be in the $50 range. Don't miss it!” And from Wine Spectator, “Sleek, yet shows simmering potency in the background. Expressive blackberry, mocha and cinnamon flavors build structure toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2026.” How much? If Saratoga Wine Exchange still has it in stock, just $12.35 per bottle. This is a stupid price for wine of this quality. Others sell it for more. But not that much more.
