Meetup Description: Okay, red wine lovers - this one's for you! An all-star line up of Wine Spectators best value picks for Cabernet.

*Rock & Vine 2006 Three Ranches Cabernet Sauvignon - Rock & Vine is a Bordeaux-style blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon (79%), Merlot (13%), Cabernet Franc (4%), Malbec (2%) and Petit Verdot (2%). Rich blackberry and cassis flavors intermixed with roasted coffee beans and cocoa aromas. Flavors of sweet oak and spice combined with tobacco and black cherries linger throughout a lengthy finish. >Tana adds - bing cherry, licorice, tootsie roll chocolate, smooth, light with excellent body, so easy to drink!

*Thirty Nine Degrees 2005 Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon - Ripe and rich, with delicious plum and black cherry fruit that's supple, elegant and polished.
>Tana adds - bright entry, slightly sweet, yes to the plum and black cherry, add earthy, woody and a little moss tone

*B R Cohn 2006 North Coast Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon ? This combination offers full, rich flavors of berry, cassis and black cherry with hints of vanilla in the background. >Tana adds - cherry and oak and definitely vanilla (not so common in a Cab but in this case a good thing)

*Galante Vineyards 2005 Rancho Galante Cabernet Sauvignon - This wine offers a burst of distinctive fruit flavors with a hint of oak and soft tannins on the finish. >Tana adds - bold entry with a big dry finish, beautiful flavors of boysenberry and fruit, leather and fresh tobacco aroma - yummy

*Villa Mount Eden 2004 Napa Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - Spiced black plum aromas intermixed with caramel cherry flavors are generously displayed in our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, subtle oak nuances and earthy currant characters combine to present a richly textured tapestry reflective of its Napa Valley roots. >Tana adds - smooth, big, earthy with berry and anise

Comes with a light appetizer style plate of cheese, nuts and dried fruit. Full size appetizers and paninis are availalble to order on your own.

So if you think we don't present enough reds at our events, then you should be at this one!
