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.

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

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.

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.

Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Product #31686 (In Stock)
Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016

Altosur - "High in the South" - wines are grown at 1,200 meters and higher elevations, giving them a fine purity and finesse to go with the bold Mendoza fruit. From estate grown fruit and with a few months barrel aging, this is loaded with juicy currant and blackberry fruit framed by touches of chocolate and crushed herb.  Plenty of heft - no one will call this "light" - but no heaviness in a tasty, drink now and with anything, Cabernet Sauvignon value.

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

Jam Cabernet California 2014 Jam Cabernet California 2014

Winery Notes: "Rich, bold and luscious, this easy-to-love Cabernet is all about the fruit. Harvested at perfect ripeness and made in the tradition of great Californian winemaking, there’s plenty of soft, dark berries and plums on the nose and palate. Aging in our own blend of new oak smooths and rounds this wine, adding a touch of vanilla that’s uniquely JaM Cabernet!"

Grande Courtade Rose L'Instant Pays d'Oc 2016 Product #31959 (In Stock)
Grande Courtade Rose L'Instant Pays d'Oc 2016 Grande Courtade Rose L'Instant Pays d'Oc 2016

From rolling vineyards near the Languedoc city of Beziers, this is an utterly delightful blend of organic Cabernet Sauvignon with light splashes of Pinot Noir and Merlot.  A lovely coppery salmon color in the glass, it's loaded with crunchy strawberry, ripe cranberry, and a dash of orange zest that collectively deliver outstanding energy and drive.  Finishes emphatically dry and long.

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!

Canoe Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills 2014 Canoe Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills 2014

Washington' Horse Heaven Hills AVA turns out some of the most plush, rich, chocolaty Cabernet Sauvignon wines in the state.  Here the blend of Cabernet (75%), Merlot (23%) and Syrah picks up even more depth and richness from 10 months aging in American and French oak.  Feels plush and round on the palate with dark berry fruit, sweet spice and notes of chocolate emerging mid-palate and deepening on the rich, velvety, finish.  A great Cab to enjoy with a wide range of foods or just to sip on its own.

Paul Hobbs second label from Argentina's Mendoza Valley is always one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon values you can find.  In 2014, it's once again a big, rich, wine with great texture and plenty of ripe fruit. 

"I like the black olive and bark with currant undertones. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish that's also silky and crisp. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 91 points

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Product #31987 (In Stock)
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014

A GREAT burger Cab, this is loaded with rich fruit and spice in a plushly textured wine that finishes with a deep chew of ripe fruit.

"From vines planted in 1973; cropped at one cluster per shoot. Bright, dark red. Ripe yet cool aromas of cassis, licorice and menthol. Supple, spicy and slightly medicinal; in a rather Old World style for a Catena wine but still with lovely fruit sweetness. The deep clay soil stayed cool in 2014 but the fruit was not affected by rot, according to Vigil. Began a bit clenched, with the acids and tannins out of sync, but harmonized nicely as it opened in the glass."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Hedges Red Mountain Red 2012 Hedges Red Mountain Red 2012

There aren't many turning out the kind of top quality, fine value, wines we see from the Hedges Family, and this beauty from their Red Mountain, Washington, estate may just be the finest of all.  It's 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, about 30% Merlot, and the rest Cab Fanc, Malbec, and Syrah aged just 10 months in American and French oak.  We love the richness and density here, the deep fruit, spicy oak, and subtle currant blossom note on the finish.

"Aromas of herb, cedar, mushroom, anise and cherry are reserved on this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend. It's supple in feel, with well-balanced dark-fruit flavors and tart acidity that draws out the finish."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31921 (In Stock)
Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink every day.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style – but at an eye-opening value price.

In the fine 2014 harvest, the wine opens with sweet and savory aromas of cherry, currant, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, and crushed mint.  The flavors follow the nose at first, but with air gain breadth and creaminess, coating your palate with layers of crushed blackberry, cassis, roasted meat, and rich chocolate.  Delicious stuff with fine sophistication and balance.

A solid wine takes a BIG step up in 2015 in the richest, deepest, and more robust version of this great value Napap Caberent we've seen yet.  A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oak Knoll and Mt Veeder plus 6% Merlot and a splash of Petite Sirah with a nice lash of French and American oak.  A Caymus-like texture - plush, rich, chocolaty - with lavish flavors of back berries, currant, milk chocolate, fresh herb and oodles of spice.  Finishes with a gush of dark fruit, vanilla and spice over velvety tannins.  An outstanding value.

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.

Another winner from Napa's hugely successful 2012 harvest, this 95% Cabernet aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.  It's a stylish Napa Cabernet, with loads of redcurrant, berry, and currant fruit accented by notes of coffee, chocolate, cedar, and tobacco.  Delicious from first sip, this gains length and depth with air, with more coffee/mocha notes emerging over the fine-grained tannins.  Tastes like a $50+ bottle and ready now with steak and lamb.

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

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.

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

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
