2018 Substance by Charles Smith Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley

$16.95
JS93

This has all the elements of a classy, classic Cabernet Sauvignon at a shockingly insubstantial price point. Wonderful depths of black cassis, dark cherry and olive character with savory, earthy layers. Full-bodied and rich without succumbing to heaviness, this is an absolute case buy that, according to Jeb Dunnuck, “makes a mockery of just about every other Cabernet Sauvignon in this price range.”

James Suckling

This has the wonderful, dark-fruit and olive character of a ripe cabernet sauvignon, but the polished tannins fold over the wine. It’s full-bodied, yet agile and focused at the finish. Real wine for the money.
