Summary

A rare wine club focusing only on Cabernet Sauvignon. If you are or know a Cabernet Sauvignon lover who doesn't love Napa prices, this is a no-brainer decision.

What We Like

Like custom-fit sports-equipment, a Cabernet Sauvignon wine club just feels right. It's always worthwhile to explore such an amazing grape through unique regional expressions of its potential.

Improvements

We'd like them to publish what wines they've shipped to customers in the past and we'd like it if the website were more user-friendly.

Cabernet Sauvignon, the king of all red wines, has several wine clubs devoted to it. This is the only one we know of that focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, California. Like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon is a cool-climate grape that doesn’t typically do well in hot Paso Robles... BUT unlike Merlot, winemakers in Paso Robles are pushing the limits of winemaking skill and making some interesting Cabs. We think you’ll enjoy this wine club if you enjoy Cabernet, but don’t be expecting Napa or Sonoma-style wines (or their poor quality-to-price ratio), Central Coast Cab is a unique Cabernet experience all its own.

As with all wine clubs offering ongoing subscriptions with shipping and handling costs built in, we wish they wouldn’t. It’s appropriate for pre-paid subscriptions (especially for gifts) but when we’re getting regular wine shipments we’d prefer to know how much of what we’re paying for is wine and how much is shipping and packaging expenses.

This is the perfect choice for those that want two bottles of Cabernet delivered each month!

Certainly the most successful and popular of the top-quality red wine around the world, the Cabernet has come to assert itself as well on this continent as the undisputed king of the world-class, highly touted, valued and respected California's super wines. This reputation for excellence has served to re-launch the "Cabs" immense popularity & boom around the globe.

The prolifically perplexing and poetic personality make the Cabernet a wine that just seems to get into people's hearts and souls, and never let's go. With it's numerously varied and advanced substructure of flavors, nose, and multiple after-tastes, the "Cab" has consistently provided a much beloved structure, sense and longevity, making it an all time favorite, sure fire hit!.

Its fruity flavors pour deep and dark, with a lush, "oaky" bouquet of sweet cherries, spice, black currants and a touch of mint. The palate has been described as a veritable cornucopia of berries and cherries, with aftertastes ranging from minty cedar to mild bell pepper and aged tobacco. All this with a perfectly smooth and seamless balance in acid and tannins. Our Cabernet will literally blow your mind and make your taste buds dance for joy!
