Average price: $17.99 from 16 stores
Showing nice balance on the nose with obvious toasted spice, burnt sugar oak notes immersed in aromas of macerated dried herbs, dried flowers and black currant fruit with a hint of black tea adding some detail. A touch low acid on entry, this is broad and fairly rich in the mouth with a luxurious, plush feel to it. the fruit is nicely presented, fresh plum, blueberry and cranberry flavors with a subtle oak framing note and some wood tannins and vanilla sugar accenting the moderately long finish. Pretty elegant and with obvious textural appeal. I would drink this sooner rather than later as the wood tannins are a bit much for the fruit but for a near term Cabernet this should prove to be very popular. 89pts

List It
  • 150558moldavi33 I'd like to add Educated Guess to this list. Phenomenal Cab for $20-$25, drinks more like a $40 bottle. Napa fruit, but not overly extracted, and pretty well structured, to boot. Gimmick-y label, but don't let that dissuade you; it's very, very good.


  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Good call Moldavi. A very attractive wine!


  • 12988261206gene I still think the H3 ( Horse Heaven Hills ) cab from Columbia Crest is one of the best bargain cabs around, with plenty of cab character for $11.69 to $15, depending upon where you buy it.


  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Absolutely gene. I serve it blind on occasion and it has no problem keeping up with $20-$25 Cabs. Thanks for the suggestion.


  • 1145575wolfarthe Anything from Waterbrook! Great producer at affordable prices. Merlot is even better than their cabs.
