When ordering a glass of wine in a restaurant, I rarely choose a Cabernet and am nearly always disappointed when I do. This Powers Cabernet from Washington's Columbia Valley, however, seemed like the ideal wine to go with the Wagyu Beef Sirloin steak I ordered at Every Day People Cafe in Douglas, MI. The steak was good, and so was the wine.
From the first sniff, I get a unique herbal note (taragon?) that's worth exploring. The wine has far more depth and complexity than the house Cabernet beside it. It's medium bodied with tart cherry/red fruit acidity. Not as much black currant as the house Cabernet but a far more intriguing flavor profile. It's perfect with the chargrilled beef, but it would also drink well on its own.
