This Cabernet Sauvignon boldly boasts its Rutherford AVA sourcing with its great saturation of color, aromas and flavors. Its massive brambly blackberry, cassis and black plum expressionintermingles with nuances of earthy forest loam, mocha, pipe tobacco, caramel and sweet oak spices. The structured "Rutherford dust" tannins give this wine its dense texture and expansivemouthfeel, while balanced acidity from the excellent growing season adds vibrancy.  WINERY

Here’s a red-fruited cabernet that’s juicy and ripe, buoyed by the elegance of benchland tannins. Those tannins feel brisk, with rocky mineral edges and softer hints of leather. They gird the flavors, holding them tight, even as a beam of freshness shoots through the middle of the wine, brightening the formal structure. Why pay $200 for a sumo wrestler when you can get this lithe marathon runner for $45?  WINE & SPIRITS

A soft and juicy red with a blackberry and black-olive character. Dark chocolate, too. Some green olives. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.  JAMES SUCKLING

A great value from the great producer, this includes 5% Touriga, 4% Petite Sirah and 1% of mixed other grapes. Together, they offer juicy cherry notes and a big imprint of toasted tannin, the backbone of oak substantial yet soft and approachable. The finish is all mocha.  WINE ENTHUSIAST
