"Dark dusty garnet color. Delicate, fruity aromas of dried berries, chocolate, marinated olives, and clay with a satiny, bright, fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, medium-length peppery spices and berry custard pie finish with fine, chewy tannins and light oak. A supple and inviting Napa cabernet."

Product Description:

This is not just a sub-$25 Napa Cabernet. It's a 92-point sub-$25 Napa Cab.

Juicy, smooth, oaky & rich & full. Has aromas of dried berries, chocolate, marinated olives, and clay. On the palate, peppery spices and berry custard pie. Bottom Line, this is a supple and inviting Napa Cabernet.

At this price, you can not only enjoy this Cabernet alongside red wine braised short ribs, a pairing recommended by Tastings.com (see their full review below), you might as well use it to make your red wine braised short ribs. Life is too short to braise short ribs with bad wine, after all.

It's from Rutherford.

Rutherford is a Napa Valley sub-appellation, between Oakville and St. Helena. It's home to Bello Family Estate, Beaulieu Vineyard, Provenance, Nickel and Nickel and more of your favorite Cab estates! It's a warm region. Rutherford Cabernets are known for their intensity and richness.

This Cabernet is ready to drink now. With Sunday night football (move over Coors Light) or your latest Netflix favorite. With short ribs or tempeh. Uncorked on your table or gift wrapped with a bow.
