Wente Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley Southern Hills 2008
I was able to buy this on sale at Safeway for $9, I believe this to be a great value. Slighty better than comparably priced offerings from Sterling, J. Lohr and C St. J. Will buy several cases for continued usage and gifting.
External Reviews for Wente Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley Southern Hills
A purplish Cab with smatterings of Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Grenache and Merlot that starts out quite tannic, mellowing into a nicely balanced dinner-table wine, with hints of cranberry and black currant and subtle oak. A great deal for a well-made Cab that should get even better with another 2ndash;3 years in bottle.

Lush, dense and powerful Cabernet at a fraction of the cost of many other fine California wines. Notes of cedar, violets and tobacco blend seamlessly with classic black fruit flavors.
