Delicious and highly recommended Cab from an unexpected place. Save almost 50% on the Hill Top Winery Ranch House Cabernet Sauvignon.
Reverse Wine Snob is all about finding the absolute best wines at the absolute best prices and often that means going a bit off the beaten path to the lesser known regions. Places where wines aren’t marked up simply because of the name of the appellation on the label (Napa Valley, I’m looking at you).
Going off the beaten path is also one of the great things about our Insider Deals in that we have the opportunity to bring you wines that you’d likely never find on your own. Such is the case today.
The first time I tasted today’s Cabernet it was blind as it came in a label-less bottle. My impression (after we finished said bottle) was that this was a darn nice Cab!
The second time I tasted the wine (in its labeled form as you see here today) it was side by side with several other premium Cabs including a $50+ Napa Cab. It measured up remarkably well.
Which makes it all the more surprising since this wine comes from San Diego County – not exactly the hotbed of California wine country (although nearby Temecula has gained a lot of respect in recent years).
It turns out that the very first vineyard in California happened to be in San Diego and up until Prohibition the area had quite a few vineyards. Renewed interest began in the 1990s and the area now has a number of boutique wineries with growing reputations for quality wine.
And today we’ve got a highly discounted opportunity to give one of these wines a try!

From the winery:
This fruit forward cab is a complex blend of red fruit flavors that provide a smooth texture. The well-balanced tannins that finish with notes of dried currant and raspberry are what won us our first award.
Produced & Bottled by Hill Top Winery
The 2017 Hill Top Winery Ranch House Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from San Diego County.
It opens with quite an inviting Cab-like aroma of black cherry and lots of really well integrated spice notes plus licorice, vanilla and more.
Taking a sip reveals that this is indeed a very well done Cabernet! Featuring plenty of spice, vanilla and cola under the rich, dark, concentrated fruit, it has a lot of oak influence, but carries it easily and it only adds to the appeal. And it gets even better after a couple hours in the glass.
Balanced and tasty, this is a really solid Cabernet at this price, regardless of where it comes from. It ends dry and quite long and persistent on the spicy finish. Very good!
