Food Pairings for Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon
Lovely. Nice price.
Fantastic cab for the money! I couldn't believe it was this affordable!! - Tasted at Lee's Wine Experience 11/7/09
thank you Di--- delicious!
Consistently a nice wine for the price for a decade now. Some years even better buy than others. The 2007 seems a bit thin to me....good, just a bit thin. The nose is closed at the start but does open up a little, then just stops. Cherry and berries for sure, but no leather or tobacco undertones. Drinks easy and is quite good if not overly complex. Light tannins and a bit of acidity at the finish make this a good food wine. For the price, it certainly has many things going for it.
Smoky plum, blackberry, blueberry and cellar, lots of low notes but very high and surprisingly clean. Bargain at $12.
A great wine for a great price
External Reviews for Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon
Pure, straightforward Cabernet character: flavors of dark berries, cassis, and milk chocolate. This is well-balanced in the mouth and carries itself with considerable elegance. A firm structure makes it perfect with grilled meats.
Lots of richness and complexity in this lovely wine, which has flavors of ripe blackberries, cassis, roasted coffee, herbs and smoky oak. It's quite dry, with a good grip of tannin.
This Paso Robles Cab offers dark cherry and blackberry on the nose, and a nice amount of fruit and warmth on the palate. Dry and smooth.
A little bitter and sharp around the edges, but there's a nice core of blackberry and black currant fruit, and the finish is fully dry. Will provide pleasant drinking over the next 1-2 years, at an everyday price.
Lots to like in this Cab. Few regions do a better job of ripening red wines than Paso Robles while keeping prices modest. This one, from the hilly, limestony west side, is softly rich in blackberry and cherry flavors wrapped in fine, sweet tannins. This is a good price for a Cab of this quality.
A perennial customer favorite, the Liberty School Cabernet is lush and juicy, with smooth tannins and bold, dark fruit. A great buy!
The Liberty School label was created in 1975 by the redoubtable Caymus Vineyards to absorb surplus cabernet sauvignon grapes. In 1987, after the brand became popular, the Hope family, which owned vineyards in Paso Robles, began selling cabernet grapes to Caymus. By 1995, production of Liberty School had moved to Paso Robles, and within four years, a Central Coast chardonnay and syrah had been introduced. Liberty School is now a label under the umbrella of Hope Family Wines, which includes Treana, Austin Hope and Candor.The Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Paso Robles, is as bright, ripe and juicy as all get-out. Intense aromas of cassis and black raspberry are woven with sweet, spicy oak, dusty tannins and a deep core of lavender and mulberry. The wine is boisterously spicy, imbued with generous black currant and plum flavors bolstered by taut acidity and a dense chewy finish where elements of grainy tannins and crushed gravel align with the earthy character of briers and brambles. This is as charming as cabernet gets and is a terrific match with burgers and pizzas and hearty pasta dishes.
