Soft decadent daily drinkable cab that's a steal for $7.99. Ideal for a young sales rep looking to impress a client at dinner. Find some and buy it while it is cheap.

Opens with blackberry and brier notes, with a slightly rustic edge throughout, before the smoky, coffee finish takes over. Still, very tasty fruit. At this price, it's a steal. Drink now through 2003.

Excelsior's 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon is an extraordinary value that, thankfully, is available in extremely large quantities. Four thousand cases of this dark ruby-colored beauty have already been sold in the United States, and its importer has an additional 40,000 at its disposal. Black currants and sweet grape aromas burst form the glass. This is a medium-bodied, boisterously flavored wine loaded with intense blackberries, black cherries, and cassis. Well-balanced, its ripe fruit comes across as bright and fresh. It should be enjoyed over the next 3 years.

Throughout this wine is an herbiness typical of South African wines. In this case, the herbal notes are offset by toast, cream, peach and lemon. This has very good body, finishing with intense fruit.

Fresh and grapey, with some black cherry and sweet chocolate notes as well. Not as rich as the previous vintages, but still a great value. Drink now.

Saturated ruby. Extractive aromas of molasses and coffee grounds. Concentrated, sweet and round, but with slightly baked flavors of moderate depth. Finishes hard-edged and a bit dry, with jammy fruits.

Juicy and fresh, with blackberry and cassis fruit, sweet smoke and a chocolaty finish. Moderate in scope, but really quite tasty. Heck of a value. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines varying in age from 5 to 20 years. Light French oak maturation. Blackish plum in color. Aromas of ripe blackcurrants and plummy fruit. Soft ripe tannins balance toasty oak aromas and sweet fruit flavors. On the palate, good structure with a soft, clean finish.
