A bit reticent on the nose with some pencil shavings and lots of tart red fruit. A bit soft in the mouth and broad. lacking a bit of acidic brightness though this does deliver lots of black cherry and black currant fruit with a nice toasty oak base note and some peppery spice on the backend. The finish is almost non-existent with dry powdery tannins being the main feature. This is easy drinking and easy to understand but a bit ordinary. 83pts

Well-balanced, wonderful wine--especially for its price.

Somewhat restrained but very fruit forward on the nose with lots of fresh blackberry/blueberry and some slight herbaceous leafy notes. Maybe sweet black licorice notes, too. A simple and very juicy wine on the palate with lots of ripe tannins. Some acidity, but I felt like it could have used more to make it "pop", if that makes sense. Fairly long length.

They say don't judge by the label, but in this case my hunch that I was starting in on a some mediocre California slosh turned out to be correct. Sugary and lacking in character and interesting flavors. Blekh.

Berry, chocolate and tobacco. Slight sweet finish. Low tannins and smooth mouth feel. Nothing spectacular here, very average. Would not purchase again.

This Cabernet Sauvignon offers up-front aromas of ripe red fruit, followed by similar vibrant and rich berry flavors. Silky but firm tannins lend excellent structure, while maintaining a soft approachability reflective of Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a ripe finish with good length.

One of our favorite everyday BBQ Cabernets has returned. That's right grab a Liberty School Cabernet and be sure to get the grill going.

A gentle take on cabernet β€” not exactly lean, but definitely restrained. Plummy and supple with a black olive savor, it’s made for roast beef.

The 2010 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black cherry, plum and violets, followed by subtle flavors of strawberry and allspice on the mid-palate. Firm yet supple tannins finish off this approachable, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon, making it ideal for a variety of food pairings. - WineryVarietal: Cabernet SauvignonAppellation: Paso RoblesAlcohol: 13.5%

Excellent value. Easy-drinking, with warm berry and currant fruit, baking spices and light cedar notes. Perfect for pretty much any occasion.

This is a fine Cabernet to drink with burgers, Mexican food, beef stew or skirt steak. Soft and sweet, it has flavors of blackberries and cherries, plus a just-right jacket of smoky oak and a smooth, spicy finish.

Aromas of ripe red fruit and hints of vanillin, followed by vibrant red berry flavors. Solid sweet tannins.

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.
