Mike and Karen Wade have done it again. Their 2010 Fielding Hills Riverbend Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was picked at the state's top cabernet in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine's Top 100 Washington Wines. The list was published in this month's issue.

The East Wenatachee boutique winery has won many awards and topped several best wine lists since Mike Wade began making wine from his Wahluke Slope vineyard in 2000.

In picking the wine as this year's top choice among many great Washington cabernet sauvignons, wine reviewer Sean P. Sullivan wrote that Wade continues to craft some of the state's finest wines. "Wade’s 2010 cabernet exudes baker’s chocolate, vanilla, black cherry, and sweet herbs with concentrated flavors and a cranberry-filled finish." The wine sells for $42.

Other North Central Washington wines named to the magazine's Top 100 list included Milbrandt Vineyards' 2012 Traditions Pinot Gris. It was named as one of the list's six best "food friendly wines." Produced at Butch and Jerry Milbrandt's Wahluke Wine Co. in Mattawa, the wine retails for a very reasonable $13.

Cairdeas Winery's (Manson) 2012 Nellie Mae White Wine ($22) was named to a list of best Washington wines under $25.

Sullivan said he pared the top 100 from more than 600 wines submitted.
