Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon Premier 5 2006
The 2006 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon displays upfront aromas of ripe red fruit and hints of vanillin, followed by similar vibrant red berry flavors. Solid tannins lend excellent structure, while maintaining a soft approachability reflective of Paso Robles Cabernets. The wine has a ripe, full finish. Its fruit-driven style lends ease to food pairing: a good choice for grilled, braised or roasted meats, Mediterranean fare and semi-aged cheeses.
If your looking for something for daily consumption, this is about as good as it gets in the $10 range. Very nice balance of fruit and spice, subtle oak on the finish, soft tannins.
Very good entertaining wine. I always have a case on hand.
A surprisingly good wine for the price - best cab I have had in that price range
Light nose of dark fruit. Very good balance in this wine. Bright and luscious with a velvety mouthfeel. Great Paso Robles cab for under $15!
Great wine for the price!
Good cab for the price range. Not quite as complex as the best cabs, but definitely smooth and drinkable.
Chocolate. Pleasing length and richness for this price point.
External Reviews for Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon Premier 5
The 2004 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon offers upfront aromas of ripe blackberry, chocolate and cassis, with hints of vanillin. Similar deep berry flavors are enhanced by elegant tannins and a rich, full finish. A diversity of porous soils and microclimates among our various vineyards contributes to excellent depth and complexity of flavors in the glass.
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.
89 Points- Wine Spectator 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.
