This was the favorite of our group. We picked up a lot of chocolate, tobacco and leathery flavors, in addition to the "dusty" taste of most napa cabs. Read more

This lacked the acidity to counteract the cassis and blackberry fruit flavors and aromas. It picked up some chocolate and coffee notes as it opened, with loads more sweet blackberry fruit. For fruit-forward cab lovers.

One of my favorite wines under $20 so far. Berries and a tad smokey. Not just for "burgers" this wine is favorably reviewed throughout the web and I agree.

A great example of a California red. The smell is overwhelmed by berries followed by a silky, fruity and rounded tannic finish. Went well with a pan roasted steak and spinach salad.

A tremendous value in Napa Cabernet, it showcases plenty of ripe blackberry fruit and hints of mocha and licorice.

Dark cherries and cassis seamlessly complement the smoky chocolate notes in this classic California Cabernet. It's unbelievable that this wine is available for less than $15! Brought to you by the winning winemaking team of David Hayman and Dennis Hill, of Blackstone fame, the Selection No. 27 captures every quality that good Cabernets are known for - dense, dusty fruits, firm, hearty tannins and an overwhelming sense of satisfaction in the finish. Amazing value.


Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Dark plum and cherry aromas are edged with notes of licorice, and unfold gradually to subtle, smoky oak. Soft and luscious on entry, with bright, almost sweet flavors of ripe stone fruit. The medium weight and stylish finish are typical of Napa Valleys finest Merlot. This wine is well suited for spicy casseroles with beef or chicken and will complement subtle wild rice and lightly seasoned pasta dishes.
