Munoz-Oca is a master at making Cabernet in Washington State. He made Cabernet
for Columbia Crest which was Wine Spectators Number One Wine on the Wine
Spectator Top 100 in 2009.
Todays wine is his new
project and his
2016 Borne Of Fire Cabernet
has hit a home run. The wine received a monster 96pts by
James Suckling and priced under $20 a bottle with Free Shipping, the wine is a
great Opportunity for all Cab Lovers.
Like a phoenix rising
from the ashes, Borne of Fire has laid claim to a new land affectionately
referred to as â€śThe Burn.â€ť From a rugged terrain where agriculture was scarce to
where present Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grow mighty, Borne of Fire plows ahead
and defies the odds.
The wine is a drinker
with rich concentration and a supple backend. This will be a great drinker for
the Fall and winter ahead.
