Cabernet to Buy Now

What the big brand producers have to offer

Cabernet to Buy Now One of the oddities of the California wine scene is that the biggest producers are also among the oldest producers. Many, if not most, of the famous names produce an incredibly broad range of wines that range in price from a few dollars to well over $100. There’s definitely a range in quality across that broad price spectrum, but the key for today’s project is to seek out where the value is.

The $20 price point for California Cabernets is neither inexpensive nor expensive, but in order to get a good wine for $20, you have to either find the producers with scale or the producers who got in cheaply. I found some great Cabernets from Paso Robles which I reported on yesterday. They are taking advantage of the lower price of land and grapes down there. With this selection though, it’s all about volume.

Yes these are some big producers, but who is better equipped than the big guys to produce real value? They have the means, the machines, and the experience, so don’t be surprised by the quality you’re going to find in many of these bottles.
