Maddalena Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2007
My 4.5 Glasses review is completely dependent on the price of this wine. For close to ten bucks, this is a lovely wine. It's not exceptional but, for less than $150 a case Maddalena embodies the main points of a Cab:Cassis, Raspberry and Chocolate. Additionally, that the vineyard keeps Maddalena in the barrel a year or two longer than most results in a more drinkable wine. I buy a case for holidays almost every year. That said - Maddalena compare well with wines costing $25 (in CA) or so.
