Average price: $215.88 from 5 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.
