Vintage tasted 2007 Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah

Overview It’s rare to find a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley AVA under $15, much less one that’s as classically delicious as this. It has all the qualities that have earned Napa fans across the world: tons of fruit flavor, an expansive mouthfeel, and a hint of black pepper. Even our blind tasters who are skeptical of the California style couldn’t help but love it. It would be a great pairing with a juicy steak, but we’d be just as happy to drink it by itself—it’s so big it feels like a full meal.

Nose Our blind tasters found currant, pepper, and even what was described as wet grass, an adjective combination more often attributed to white wine.

Mouth It’s big and expansive, with massive body and plenty more fruit.
