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.

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.

For over three decades, Liberty School has been among the best values in California wine. In the early 1980’s, Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles caught the attention of renowned Napa Valley vintner Chuck Wagner of Caymus Vineyards. Because of the incredible quality and value of their Paso Robles Cab, Wagner approached Hope Farms in search of Cabernet for his second label wine, Liberty School. The Hope family helped build the brand’s solid reputation over the years and in 1996, the Hopes took over the label. Austin Hope, who started working under Chuck Wagner, in the early 1990s, heads the winemaking team and their goal has always been the same; to produce delicious, fruit-driven, varietally correct wines at reasonable prices. That’s what this Liberty School 2007 Cab is all about. It offers vibrant cassis and berry fruit with supple tannins and just touch of oak.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This Cabernet is a consistent quality wine every vintage; aggressive yet controlled fruit offer a backbone of rich, deep berry and cassis with a notable balance of tannin and acidity; the price makes it affordable to entertain with quality and not break the bank.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
