Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Product #31862 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015

If you're looking for subtle, elegant, sophisticated California Cabernet...then look elsewhere.  Because this is rowdy, pumped up, boldly fruited, vanilla and chocolate-laced Cab with French oak spice and a finish as plump as a feather pillow.  Importer and Master Sommelier Fran Kysela created the Rubus label so he could find under-appreciated fruit in great growing regions and turn it into crowd-pleasing wines a wallet-delighting prices.  This is the best we've tasted in the series, with good heft (at just 13.5% abv) and oodles of chocolate-covered cherry fruit and sweet oak spice.  Soft enough to sip at a casual cookout, bold enough to enjoy with burgers, steaks or lamb, and affordable enough to share with a crowd.

Poppy Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2015 Product #31600 (In Stock)
Poppy Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2015 Poppy Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2015

Poppy's a pretty much perfect Paso party cab.  No, it's not terribly serious, but the boisterous fruit, smoky oak, and sweet spice aromas and flavors are forward and ready to play. Juicy and fleshy on the palate with smooth, supple, tannins and a nice lash of black fruit, smoke and spice on the smooth, fresh, finish.  Easy drinking fun.

Tilia Cabernet Mendoza 2015 Product #31734 (In Stock)
Tilia Cabernet Mendoza 2015 Tilia Cabernet Mendoza 2015

A very fine Cabernet value, this is plump with dark currant fruit and accents of chocolate and herb, finishing ripe and easier than the review suggests.  Nice stuff.

"The grapes for the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at three different points of ripeness to achieve better balance and complexity. This usually has some Syrah from Barrancas in east Mendoza. There are varietal aromas, clearly herbal, perhaps a little blurry, in the shape of tobacco leaves, blackberries and a touch of spice. The palate is soft, with some dusty tannins giving it an austere profile."Wine Advocate 89 points

Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014 Product #31569 (In Stock)
Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014 Seven Falls Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2014

This Wahluke Falls Cab sells for $23 at the winery and comfortably outperforms that price point.  The fruit is fully ripe and rich - but not over-ripe or pruney - with generous aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, dark raspberry and crushed herb.  A full 18 months in 53% new barrels (one-third American, two-thirds French oak) gives the wine a supple and plush mouthfeel and loads of cocoa, vanilla, and rich sweet spice notes.  The finish is remarkably long for a $20-$30 bottling, with layered currant, berry, cocoa and spice flavors flowing out over fine-grained tannins that melt away gently.  A great choice to pair up with roast beef, grilled lamb, or roasted vegetable dishes or to just pop and pour at a big celebration.  A lot of wine for the money!

Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Product #31306 (In Stock)
Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015

Here's a real winner in the "A Lot of Wine For The Money: Cab Division."  This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown at 2,300 feet elevation, where plenty of sunshine ripens the fruit to rich perfection and cool night air locks in freshness and vibrancy.  You'll love the big Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco, and chocolate.  In the mouth, it's ripe and densely packed with currant, cherry, black raspberry spice and chocolate flavors.  There's a nice herb and chocolate complexity here, but the fruit really holds center stage.  Big enough for steak or lamb, but easygoing enough to just drink at a party or on the deck, this is outstanding value in rich, drinkable, Cab.

Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon Max Reserva 2015 Product #32250 (In Stock)
Errazuriz Cabernet  Sauvignon Max Reserva 2015 Errazuriz Cabernet  Sauvignon Max Reserva 2015

Real, ripe, lush Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 25% new French oak and loaded with fruit, smoke, herb and spice.  As WA says, it's "a steal."

"Beautiful aromas of blueberries and currants with a hint of stone and concrete. Medium to full body, firm and lightly chew tannins with a dusty texture. Hints of chocolate and hazelnut nut. A cab that gives you pleasure and interest. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 92 points

"The 2015 Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from their estate vineyards in the interior of the Aconcagua Valley, cropped from an early, warm and dry year. The wine matured in French oak barrels, 25% of them new, for 12 months before bottling. The wine is impeccable, with a nice Cabernet structure, and in fact it feels like a much more expensive wine. It has a slightly commercial profile, but it's less sweet and has a lot less oak than before. The price is a steal. The palate is vivacious and has a very good finish and a notable absence of menthol or eucalyptus, very clean and with focused fruit."Wine Advocate 92 points

Cousino-Macul Cabernet Anitguas Rsv 2014 Cousino-Macul Cabernet Anitguas Rsv 2014

A pretty luscious bottle of Cabernet here with generous black fruit - plum, blackberry - framed by milk chocolate and fresh herb.  Smooth and dense and delicious!

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Antiguas Reservas is mostly from 20-year-old vines from Buin and a small part from Macul. It matured in second use French barriques for 12 months. It's marginally more concentrated and complex than the Don Matías, with some tannins and a touch of oak."Wine Advocate 89 points

True Myth Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2014 True Myth Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2014

The 2013 edition of this ripe and fruit-filled Paso Cab earned 90 points from Wine Enthusiast and this sleek 2014 is  just as fine.  Blueberry, blackberry and red currant fruit provide a solid core while accents of gravel, spice and a touch of smoke add complexity and interest.  Luxurious and smooth on the palate, this finishes with dark chocolate, blue/black fruit, sweet spice and very fine tannins.  A great value in classic American Cabernet.

Airfield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Product #32195 (In Stock)

From one of the first commercial vineyards in Washington (planted 1968), this is a completely delicious Cabernet Sauvignon at a very tasty price!  Right down the middle black fruit, spice and dusty oak with a "drink me now" personality.

"The aromas suggest notes of herb, vanilla, wood spice, plum and dark fruit. The palate is restrained in style, full of dark-fruit and barrel flavors and lightly grainy tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $18.98/EA

Master Sommelier/Importer Fran Kysela creates Rubus wines to deliver lots of regional and varietal character at remarkably modest price points.  And "modest" the price is here for a real Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of fruit, flavor and power.  At just 13.5% alcohol, this isn't hot, fat or over-the-top.  Instead you'll get a bold nose of black currant, blackberry, and dark plum fruit with a touch of vanilla and spice from five months in French oak.  It's plush, lush and rich on the palate with deep black currant and berry fruit wrapped in creamy oak and lifted by a nice touch of crushed herb and eucalyptus.  Finishes velvety and smooth with big fruit and lingering notes of chocolate and spice.  A great Napa Cab for sipping, parties and - of course - a thick and juicy steak!

Tooth & Nail The Possessor Red Paso Robles 2014 Tooth & Nail The Possessor Red Paso Robles 2014

This is pretty much exactly what Red Blend fans are looking for from California.  Cabernet Sauvignon's dark black currant, blueberry and tobacco notes form the core, with juicy cherry and plum notes from Malbec and a bold lushness and chocolatey richness from Petit Sirah.  Sexy oak spice frames the bold fruit on the nose and palate and gives this a dusty, cherry and spice, saturated finish.  Rich, ripe, fun.

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Product #31389 (In Stock)
Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013

A new wine from this traditional producer, one that breaks out their juicy, intense, Knights Valley fruit into a wine of its own. Stylish, with black cherry, currant, and red raspberry fruit, a fleshy middle, and nice length before finishing with classically grainy tannins. Grill a steak and enjoy!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013."   Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

It's great to see this long-time favorite return to form in the terrific 2012 vintage.  Always it showcases rich currant and blackberry fruit with accents of spice, herb, and chocolate.  Rich and smooth and easygoing for immediate delight with or without food.

"Soft and silky with pretty tannin tension and light chewiness. Medium body and chocolate, walnut and blackcurrant character. Drink now."  James Suckling 90 points

Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014 Product #31944 (In Stock)
Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014 Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014

Oakville is the heart of Napa Cabernet both geographically and in style.  This is pretty much the essence of Oakville Cab in a terrific vintage.  It's old-fashioned Clone 7 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in sandy loam soils and harvested at just 3 tons per acre.  20 months in 25% new French oak rounds things out and adds a nice spice.  Delicious right now and a fine wine to lay down for 5-15 years.

"This grows at a vineyard on Highway 29 just north of Oakville Cross Road; it’s clone 7 Cabernet planted in 1980 on sandy loam soils. The wine is relatively light in color and in its overall gracious impression, while still offering generous fruit richness in a fresh and friendly Cabernet. Simple and elegant."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31539 (In Stock)
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Joe Wagner calls this Quilt because it’s made from a patchwork of vineyards across Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon regions:   Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Calistoga and Howell Mountain. There’s no mistaking the Caymus and Belle Glos heritage in the wine’s rich fruit, mouthfilling size and plush velvet texture.  Twenty months in barrel (70% new) adds generous does of sweet spice, cocoa and vanilla aromas and flavors and softens Cabernet Sauvignon’s sometimes astringent tannins. 

Here’s Joe's tasting note:  “Quilt Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a seamless blend of cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves and charred meat with complex notes of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin. Rich and satisfying on the palate with decadent chocolate brownie, yogurt, and molasses flavors in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis.”  We’d add that the wine’s length and balance are especially impressive, and you’ll love drinking this with grilled/roasted meats or all by itself.

Wow - best in years here at this old-school Napa institution.  It's 100% Cabernet the heart of Napa - Rutherford, Oakville and St. Helena - aged 22 months in new and older French oak.  It smells great with bold black currant, spice and smoke aromas that lead to big flavors of currant, blackberry, cassis and chocolate.  Spice and baker's chocolate flavors fan out on the long, dry, savory finish that leaves a bit of Rutherford Dust behind.

Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

While Faust includes some lots from the Huneeus family’s single-vineyard Quintessa project, it’s intended to stand alone as a representation of the very best qualities of all of Napa Valley.  In 2014, it’s a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot from vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville plus dashes of Mount Veeder, St. Helena and Oak Knoll fruit.  As Wine Review Online said of the 94 point 2012, “Hard to call a $50 wine a value purchase, but by Napa Valley standards this Faust Cabernet Sauvignon qualifies… If the price were $75 most Napa devotees wouldn't even blink.”  Enjoy it now - 2034.

"This is very intense with blackberries, dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, fine and fruity yet complex and intense. Structured and lightly austere. Beautiful."  James Suckling 94 points

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013

Spencer Hoopes doesn’t seek out a lot of attention or make a lot of wine – only 2,500 cases or so in total.  So even though he’s been farming some of Napa’s finest Cabernet fruit at his White Horse Vineyard in Oakville since 1983 and making top-notch, great value, wines since the mid-1990s, you may not know the name.  Which is a good thing – it’s the reason we’re able to bring you this beauty for so much less than wines of this pedigree and praise normally command these days.  Decant for an hour and drink with grilled beef or lamb, but be sure to save a few to enjoy over the next 10 years.

"Aromas of ink and blueberries. Some stones, too. Full body, dusty-textured tannins and a rich finish. Yet this remains agile and formed."  James Suckling 93 points

"Editors Choice! This full-bodied, velvet-textured wine has an exotic aroma like a pine forest and tastes like a bowl full of blueberries. Ripe, almost jammy flavors coat the tongue, and vibrate with black currant on the finish. Fine-grained tannins give the texture lots of grip, and support the ripe fruit flavors so they stay dry and appetizing sip after sip." Wine Enthusiast 92 points

An old friend returns to form in 2014, a year of ripe but elegant Napa Cabernet.  Blends 89% Cabernet Sauvignon with Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot from St. Helena, Kenefick Ranch and Oak Knoll.  Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, violets and cedar lead to a deep, velvety, mouthful of crushed raspberry, dark currant, pepper, spice, and sweet oak spice. Ripe but not sweet, full but not fat, and finishing with stylish fine tannin to support aging (but why wait?!)
