Rex Goliath Cabernet Sauvignon Monterey County NV

Winemaker's Notes:

"No one wants to believe me when I tell them that they can have this wine for under 10.00. This is a hearty Cabernet Sauvignon with structure and concentration. Dark and intense in color. Hints of cedar and oak, with layers of raspberry, plum, mocha, and currant. Firm tannins with big fruit flavors lead to a lengthy and persistent finish. I love taking this wine to get togethers with friends. It always seems to help inspire good conversation. I probably don't need to say that a wine like this will work best with a hearty red meat dish, but I will any way. I can also confirm that this is the ultimate hamburger wine." - Winemaker

Rex Goliath:
At age 70, I have had at least 50 yrs. of a glass of wine after my evening meals. Just recently, I noticed the Rex-Goliath Chardonnay on the shelf in our local grocery store liquor department (I live in a very small town). I decided to try it. WOW!! It's like what one would imagine drinking a glass of satin would be like. SMOOTH AS SATIN and OMG so very DELICIOUS. You have a new customer... Read more

It's like what one would imagine drinking a glass of satin would be like. SMOOTH AS SATIN and OMG so very DELICIOUS. You have a new customer from now on. I don't know how long you've been in business, however, I hope you are in business for a very very long time to come. I will definitely pass on my find to all of my friends. Read less

Deep fruit and heat on the nose, with a little oak. Palate is very bright, a hint of sugar and some spice out of a dry spice box. A little medicinal as well, but all in all a pretty good value. Would love some grilled food with this, but alas I'm tasting at my desk in NYC with no grill to be seen.

Bright cherry notes on the nose with some nice wisps of campfire and a touch of oak. Smooth upon entry with hints of acidity on the palette. This would be divine for a Labor Day cookout, so take note! #GtiCabernet

a bit hot on the nose with a hint of cherry. a little spicy with dark cherries and a bit of berry. a nice smooth blackberry finish. Very nice wine. I would definitely drink this again.

I really liked this wine alot. One can enjoy a glass of this wine on it's own to enjoy it's great flavors and bouqet. I had it with home made pepperoni pizza and it was delicious. Eyes: dark purple Nose: a pleasing dark and intoxicating aroma Mouth feel: dry, medium-heavy, Nice tannins, rich, slight fruitiness.

For wine that usually costs $6 (used to be $5) this makes for a bottle easy to finish. Drinkability is smooth and the taste is good. Need to have a decent wine for folks who don't know much about wine and really don't care to learn... serve this - it's sure to please those who love a hearty wine. It will drink like a starndard cab...

This is hands-down the most drinkable cab in this price range ... and to be honest, I've had $70 cabs that I didn't like as much as the Rex. As others have noted, it's a good, dependable red that appeals even to folks who aren't usually fans of cabernet. This is my go-to wine when I have to bring something for dinner or a party and I'm not sure what people will like. And the price is just ridiculously wonderful!

This wine is an under $10 steal that is nothing to scoff at. Immense flavors of raspberry plum mocha and currant flood together and lead to an extended finish. Layers of cedar and oak allow this wine to be a hearty addition to any red meat dish. However the winemaker himself calls it the “ultimate hamburger wine.”

No one wants to believe us when we tell them that they can have this wine for under 10.00 This is a hearty Cabernet Sauvignon with structure and concentration. Dark and intense in color. Hints of cedar and oak, with layers of raspberry, plum, mocha, and currant. Firm tannins with big fruit flavors lead to a lengthy and persistent finish. It's a great wine to take to dinners with family and friends. We probably don't need to say that a wine like this will work best with a hearty red meat dish, but we will any way. We can also confirm that this is the ultimate hamburger wine. - Winemaker Marty Spate
