I love cabernet sauvignon and I equally hate it, the latter simply because it is not a wine that I can easily drink a bottle of, like I can a bottle of most white wines. Additionally, it's hard too find a good Cabernet with great berry flavors and low tannins for under $10. However, I have finally discovered one.

This wine attacks, or should I say makes loves to, your palate in an interesting build up with a nice smooth drop off. It has a nice level of black currant and blackberries in each mouthful with just the slightest hint of tannins that convey themselves as the lightest whiff of smoke buried in a velvety texture.

This is a great Cab for entertaining a large party or an intimate gathering of two.
