Excelsior Cab 750m 2008
100% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines varying in age from 5 to 20 years. Light French oak maturation. Blackish plum in color. Aromas of ripe blackcurrants and plummy fruit. Soft ripe tannins balance toasty oak aromas and sweet fruit flavors. On the palate, good structure with a soft, clean finish.
Soft decadent daily drinkable cab that's a steal for $7.99. Ideal for a young sales rep looking to impress a client at dinner. Find some and buy it while it is cheap.
Nice, smooth , lots of fruit, nice long finish. Great for the price.

Blackish plum in color. A medium-to-full bodied wine. Displays sweet, plummy notes on nose, with vanilla, chocolate and blackcurrants on palate. Has soft, ripe tannins and a long velvety finish.
Black berries, leather and cigar box spice unfold on the nose, while flavors of lush black plum, cherry, prosciutto and mocha fill the creamy mouthfeel and lead through to the long finish. A terrific value Cab that's a great choice for company to pair with a roast or steaks.

Open-knit, with sweet grape, plum and toast flavors and a round, slightly jammy finish. Drink now.
Juicy and fresh, with blackberry and cassis fruit, sweet smoke and a chocolaty finish. Moderate in scope, but really quite tasty. Heck of a value. Drink now.
A Cabernet from South Africa with great pedigree, Excelsior has consistently provided solid varietal wines with exceptional character. Full-bodied, with ripe blackberry and cassis flavors on a chewy, dense frame. Surprisingly complex, layered and delicious for an everyday favorite.
One might think by the name that this international-style Cabernet would come from New York State. But lo and behold, it hails from South Africa. Beginning on the nose, there is black currant present with a hint of thyme. The wine is fruit forward, plummy and possesses notes of black cherry; the fruit is carried by a fair amount of oak and sweet tannins. This is an unbelievable value and makes a great everyday wine; good enough for company.
