Well I’ll be — ANOTHER no-brainer from Washington just hit the Wine Spectator today: Januik Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 08, 94 points and a “Hot Wine” in today’s Insider.
Washington 2008 reds are cleaning up with huge scores in the $30 range. Januik wines are consistently excellent — Mike Januik is one of the most experienced Washington producers.
Like our last couple Washington offerings, Baer Ursa 08 and Dunham Syrah 07, I expect the Januik Cab to sell out quickly…so order now!
You can order online, by email or phone. We’re looking forward to helping stock your cellar.
Wine Spectator 94 Points “HOT WINE”

Wine Spectator – “Tightly wound, its blueberry, plum and crème brûlée flavors riding aristocratically over a layer of refined tannins. The finish persists and expands as it hints at mineral and wet earth. Best from 2013 through 2018.” – H.S.
This dark, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon is packed with cassis, blackberry, dark cocoa and warm vanilla notes in the nose. It lingers across the palate, imparting a long, polished finish that was developed in part from aging in new French oak barrels.- Mike Januik
