Top 10 Cabernets That You Can Find Almost Anywhere

Find these big brands at almost any wine shop near you


A little simple and perhaps even lighter weight, this is a very attractive, easy to drink offering full of red currant and wild herb notes supported by vanilla, dill and coconut oak. A fine little Cab for the money. 87pts Read the Full Review

2009 Jacob's Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Coonawarra Aus 13% $12

2009 Folie a Deux Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 14.3% $24

Lots of spicy oak frames a core of rich, creamy boysenberry, plum and blackberry suit. This is a big wine, rich and fun to drink but it does lack a little liveliness on the palate and some nuance. 88pts Read the Full Review

    Living in Oakland I can buy essentially any CA wine that ever circulates in channels outside of the wineries, but this is a very good list. Some of these will do very well after having been laid down just a few years, such as the Martini Sonoma or the Rodney Strong (just drank the last of their 1999 - those were past their peak). I have bought perhaps 3 or 4 cases of St Supery from 2004 thru 2006 - it is an extremely well balanced cab, a touch less tannic than I like, but always well enjoyed by guests. Oberon was just discovered by me about 6 months ago, it is about 13usd at Costco, and I think has real potential to be the best under $20 wine out there.

    When I first saw the Rodney Strong listed, I thought it was the Sonoma County because the picture showed that. It looks like the Alden was reviewed. The 2006 Sonoma County was outstanding.

  • You guys screwed up big time. The wine you pictured is a South African Cabernet Sauvignon. Proof your postings before submitting them to the public.
