Who will like it
This is a rich and ripe Cabernet with soft tannins and a touch of residual sweetness. With flavors of liquorice, juicy blackberry, ripe black currant, coffee and vanilla, if you like jiucy dark red and black fruit Cabs or are a fan of opulent blends like Orin Swift wines, this might be a great choice for you.
Why we are highlighting this wine
This wine has a 4.2 average rating from 1200 reviews on Vivino. The average price of Cabernets with a similar rating on Vivino is closer to $60, so at less than $30, this wine is a great value. The grapes for this wine are grown on hillside slopes in three different California AVAs: Alexander Valley in Sonoma County, the Sierra Foothills to the east of Sacramento, and Livermore Valley to the east of Oakland and the East Bay. Blending the right mountain fruit from vineyards in regions with a bit less cachet with the Alexander Valley fruit allows the winemaker to craft a higher quality wine, but keep the price down.
