Quick Primer on Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon

WSMV Channel 4

Ever had a Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State? It’s time you did!

If you’d like to learn a little about Washington state Cabernet, you can “virtually” taste one with Banfi’s own Jimmy Collins, who introduces Silver Totem Cabernet to the hosts of “Wine Down Wednesday” on Today in Nashville on NBC affiliate WSMV-TV.

Once you’ve finished watching this virtual tasting, if you’d like to learn more about the state’s wines, you can read Susan O’Hara’s Intro To Washington Wine. Or if you’re in a hurry, see 5 Fun Facts About Washington Wine.

Joe Janish is Director of Public Relations for Banfi Vintners, a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW), and a veteran of the wine industry for over 20 years. He launched one of the first wine blogs back in 1997, the now-defunct “Wine Dictator,” and cut his teeth on his grandfather’s homemade wine. He still keeps a copy of Wine for Dummies nearby for reference.
