Overview This is a Cab in the classic California jammy style—and we couldn’t help but love it. It’s easy to write off this ubiquitous, cutesy bottle when you see it on a grocery shelf, but it handily won our tasters over in blind tastings. The rich fruit and bold tannins are tough to hate, and if you’re a fan of New World reds, you’ll go nuts. And feel free to put it in a brown paper bag before drinking.

Nose Our blind tasters noticed strong dark berries, prunes, and even a hint of chocolate.

Mouth It’s rich and expansive, with a definite hit of California tannin.
