Cannonball Wines Cabernet Sauvignon California 2005
The Cannonball. It is the perfect symbol of freedom. Legs tucked beneath you, soaring through the air - that uninhibited spirit is the soul of Cannonball Wines. We express this in our big, bold Cabernet Sauvignon. Exploding with black cherry, wild berry fruit and notes of chocolate and oak, the rick texture lingers long with a bright, fresh finish. Share a splash with good friends.
In the words of the eminent cultural icon Borat, I have to say "wa wa we wa"! Slam dunk for this delicious Cabernet from an up and coming new Cali winery. Lots of soft plummy fruit on the nose, jammy berries and spice on the palate, and a finish that is pure tannin ( a touch heavy on the oak). Clearly still young, the wine's solid structure indicates that it will only develop and improve over the next few years. I didn't even known I could still find good Cabernet Sauvignon from Cali for under $20.
A big , bold, and beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine screams higher price point but delivers quality and value. Rich Jammy black stoned fruit is married with rich complex tannins that do not overwhelm the pallet. It's only going to get softer with age. You are going to hear about this wine for years to come. Buy it by the case.
Tasted at the 2008 Wine 2.0 event at Crushpad: A solid cabernet. Had some green pepper notes, which may dissipate as the wine ages. Black cherry fruits with a long finish of licorice
Big and bold. Especially for an inexpensive Cabernet. It explodes with berries and plum, yet with a delicate finish for its structure. No better is the phrase "more bang for you buck" represented than here.
Very flavorful. Very nice Cabernet that is very reasonably priced. Went to the store to find a comparable wine to Joel Gott 2007 Cab and was very satisfied with the store clerks opinon of this wine.
Strong smoky BBQ flavor. Bitter and overripe cherry. OK but not great.
There's enough Syrah in the mix to bring the fruit forward, but not so much that you think it was made by Welch's. Very drinkable now, and at a price point that you don't mind quaffing. Tannins held up nicely to our rare porterhouse, but didn't pair as well with the dark chocolate ganache for dessert. Bought a case to give away a few holiday gifts and everyone says they enjoy it. Hope it doesn't go up in price ($10.99 as of 1/2/08).

Cannonball 05 Cabernet A full-bodied, well-balanced wine with a thick texture palate that echoes fresh black fruit flavors. Velvety firm tannins lead to a long complex finish that screams for another splash....CANNONBALL! Introducing a brand new California Cabernet Sauvignon sourced mainly from Sonoma Valley's Dry Creek Vineyards. The wine has been crafted by master winemaker, Dennis Hill. This is Dennis Hill's first wine since leaving Blackstone. The Splash Features: ò Wine style is big and bold, yet balanced. Tannins support the classic Cabernet structure with a long complex finish of blackberry fruit typical of the Dry Creek area. ò Cannonball Cabernet delivers a quality found in wines three times the price!
