This wine is a purebred too being 100% Cabernet Sauvignon which isn't something you always see at this low of a price. (Technically wines from California only need to be 75% of a single varietal to be labeled as such. Yes, you read that right - a lot of wines that are labeled as Cabernet are actually blends.)
We found it to be a great daily drinker and at this price, why not? Through today's 1 Day Insider Deal you save over $10 a bottle (49% off) the SRP of $22.
For the next day you can get 4 bottles for just $44.99!

From the bottle:
Old Pearl has been working our sustainably farmed vineyards since she was a pup. She is a Great Pyrenees livestock guard dog and works to keep our ranch's sheep safe from predators. Over the years, she has truly become a part of our family. She is currently stationed at the home ranch where she is helping to keep the bears out of the kitchen. This wine is a tribute to her - may you enjoy this wine with your family and alongside your best dog.

The 2017 Old Pearl Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a very pleasing aroma full of ripe, dark, musty fruit plus licorice, leather, spice and some touches of dried herbs.
The ripe fruit notes continue when tasting this delicious, easy to drink wine. We really enjoyed this one, and while it's not very complex it is definitely a crowd-pleaser and at this price a very nice daily drinker. It is full of plum and blackberry fruit in the mouth plus black pepper, licorice and more. It definitely doesn't come off tasting sweet but the bit higher residual sugar probably helps increase the appeal.
It ends dry and long with a bit of lingering spice. This is doggone good!
