Wines Less Traveled: Cabernet Sauvignon

The reason behind this list is I tend to see the same wineries on "Top Cab" lists on this website and everywhere else.  Now there's nothing wrong per se with Mondavi, Caymus, Silver Oak etc but to me they don't represent good value anymore and there are plenty of great top teir cabs out there that offer both high quality and high value.  This is a short but ever growing list of great wines that in a just world would be world famous but alas are not.  I am not limiting the list to any one region (as it grows it may need to be broken up) but it will focus more on "New World" examples.

Previously available for $29.99
A highly structured and rich wine. Big aromas of blackberries and black cherries as well as toasty oak. The considerable but ripe tannins support a base of black fruits with chocolate playing the all important supporting character role. A wonderful value from Marco Digiulio
