Blackberry, cassis, black cherry, raspberry, cola, vanilla, oak and hints of mint. Great structure and velvety tannins.

Very drinkable cab that we found on a recent trip to Sonoma Co. Reasonably priced at less than $30 a bottle. A new household favorite. Big , bold and dry. Bought 12 bottles after tasting at the winery and joined their wine club for future purchases.

Tasted at a wine club then bought this bottle of the 2012. Needed time to open up. Nice tannins and fruit.

Pedroncelli 2014 Wisdom Cabernet Sauvignon (SRP $36): Aptly named, Wisdom represents the experience gained from farming the same five-acre Cabernet Sauvignon site for the past fifty years. Brilliant deep purple in color, juicy flavors of ripe blackberries and plummy notes are met by complex undercurrents of cedar-box, spice, and espresso bean. This wine is well-structured; there’s good intensity of flavor, nice texture, and grip coming from slow-building, (medium-firm) dusty tannins, all supported by a solid backbone of fresh acidity. The tannins gain momentum on the pleasing, medium-long finish. Age-worthy yet pleasurable now, this delicious Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon over-delivers for the price point. Enjoy a glass with grilled veggies or just about anything off the grill, especially a well-marbled ribeye steak. Region: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California. Other info: ABV 14.4%, matured 19 months in French oak barrels—40% new, natural cork enclosure.
