5. Kenwood Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Jack London Vineyard Sonoma Valley (2010)

« Prev Next » 5 of 10
Average price: $24.99 from 225 stores
Herbal and perfumed on the nose with a nice undercurrent of bell pepper topped by floral note of Iris, a bit of vanilla cream, black earth, black cherry and black currant fruit. A bit rustic one entry, then quickly smoothing out and showing fine power behind the flavors of black cherry, subtle oak, earthy and dried herbs. The tannins are present but soft and the acid well integrated into this moderately large scaled wine. The fruit remains rather fresh and clear in the mouth, all black currant and black cherry driven with a bit of a mineral edge emerging on the long, plum and earth tinged finish. This could use some time in the cellar 2-3 years to help further integrate the tannins but it's drinking pretty well already and will only get better. 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.
