I'm really becoming a fan of this grape - Santa Rita 120 '10 makes my list --- great nose, great color, and tons of light, black fruit (is that combo possible?); a bit of tobacco on the end.

    Ruby-red. Fresh red currant and cherry aromas, with a subtle floral quality adding interest. Juicy red fruit flavors are a touch jammy and betray none of the green qualities that are common for cabernet in this price range. Finishes with good clarity and lingering sweetness. This is a superb value and delivers more fruit punch than cabernets costing three times as much.

    A medium-bodied Chilean Cabernet with sweet berry and cherry flavors with a touch of tasty spice, mild tannins and perfect balance. It's wonderful with food.

    Youthful purple. Ripe cherry and cassis on the nose, with subtle spices and herbs adding complexity. Pliant dark fruit flavors possess good depth and clarity, and the finish is sweet and persistent. Easy to drink, and superb value.

    Dark to the eye, with perfectly adequate raspberry and black plum aromas. The palate is a touch acidic and tangy, but even though it's lean it packs ample cassis, plum and herbal influences. Solid for the money, with a feel-good personality.

    Given that this wine is the definition of mass-market Cab (350,000 cases made), you have to be impressed by its honest, round character and relatively true aromas and flavors. The nose is meaty and a little flat, while the palate has cassis, berry and mild herbal flavors. The feel has some chop to it, but overall this is good Cabernet at a price anyone can swallow.

    This perennial Best Buy shines in 2005. It's clean, inviting and ready to go as piercing cherry, plum and cola flavors make a stand. Flush, warm and fairly full-bodied, 120 is one of those bargain lines that satisfies. More than 300,000 cases made, so it's good stuff made on a grand scale.

    Surprisingly powerful and rich in fruit for its price, this offers black currant and cassis over youthfully rustic tannins. Give it some pork.
