In a nod to Columbia Crest and inspired by a reader comment, this month’s Virtual Tasting will be the 2007 Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet. This wine is widely available and retails for $15. Note that the H3 Cabernet recently had a vintage change, so some of you may still see the 2006 vintage on the shelves. The 2006 wine was a previous Virtual Tasting wine in October of 2008 and was not a hit, but the 2007 has been well received thus far so look for it.

The Virtual Tasting will take place on Monday November 23rd. As usual, I will be opening the bottle about 7pm Pacific Time and posting my notes along the way. I will also be tweeting @wawinereport and using the hashtag #virtualtasting.

Please join us in trying this wine and posting your notes any time on, before, or after the 23rd.
