2009 Liberty School 13.5% $15

This is interesting on the nose with its combination of very pure black currant fruit, softly doughy sweet vanilla oak tones and hints of both tropical fruit and flowers. On the palate, it shows a flash of orange oil early along with wild cherry fruit, then adds some nice, lightly nutty oak notes and turns more red currant flavored. The texture is a touch rigid and dry, which may come as a relief to folks seeking shelter from the fruit bomb style. The finish continues the dry theme, though there is some really nice aromatic cherry fruit that shows good persistence. Not fancy but restrained and nicely balanced. 87pts

    You can find the Liberty School at World Market in California for $10-12, which makes it a great gift for friends who like wine and aren't snooty--also can take it to a dinner when you aren't sure if the wine you bring will be opened. Or, if you don't fear palate burnout, you can treat it like a daily drinker and have really solid Cab any night you like. Really a good bargain, IMO--why buy Chilean when you can have this?
