Cabernet with a famous region’s name attached to it frequently sells for several times the price of the wine in the bottle. So what are you to do? Check out the lesser-known regions, of course. Cabernet is grown just about everywhere in the world and the notion of terroir effects only the top wines. So if you’re looking for a good daily drinker that won’t break the bank, check out someplace with a nice consistent climate. Chile has really stepped up its game over the past decade or so, and their Cabernets certainly compete with the world’s best, even if not all of us are ready to fully admit that!
