The old adage says that Cabernet is king. We created Butternut Cabernet to be king in delivering maximum flavor, quality, and value. Aromas of red berry fruit emerge from the glass with flavors of dark chocolate and round tannins lingering on the palate.

The 2016 Butternut Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a pleasing aroma of black cherry, blackberry, spice and lots of cola. Tasting reveals a smooth wine with lots of ripe, dark berry fruit. It seems to have a lot of oak influence but unfortunately the winery doesn’t disclose the oak treatment. And while it’s good, it does end up feeling a bit manufactured. Still if you’re shopping the mass market selection at your local supermarket it’s a pretty good choice for the price, especially for California Cab. The wine ends with lots of oaky spice on the long, dry finish.
