Substance AND Style: 92 points, $15 Cabernet

We're keeping cool selling a couple smoking hot Washington reds from K Vintners. First, a serious value alert: 92 points and under $15 for Washington Cabernet? They are putting the Substance in Substance!

And as we've written before, fully expect to see K's Powerline Syrah '14 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2017...and if we're betting, pretty high up on the list. And it tastes pretty dang good, too.

Substance Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
$14.85 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($16.50 regular) 
92 points Wine Advocate: "One of the best values I've tasted in a long time, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from the team at K Vintners was hand-harvested, natively fermented and aged all in French oak. Smoking good notes of cassis, black currants and hints of plum all emerge from this rich, beautifully textured, layered beauty that has solid tannic grip, a silky, elegant texture and a great finish. It has real elegance and finesse and is a dark fruited, unctuous beauty to drink over the coming 3-4 years."
 
Seriously good Cab, silly good price. Back up the truck and load up by the case! - Marcus

K Vintners Powerline Syrah 2014
$44.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($49.95 regular) 
95 points Wine Spectator, High Recommended: "A knockout Syrah, precise and impeccably built but explosive with personality. Smoky roasted meat and floral blackberry aromas combine with bold, supple flavors of dark plum, pepper and licorice. The tannins are big but polished. Drink now through 2024."
