Cabernet Sauvignon Vignette #9 2006 Benziger, 2005 Ferrari-Carano, 2007 Justin PASO ROBLES

Three vignets of California Cabernet Sauvignon wines, all 88 points, all are a good buy on sale, all rich and full of flavor, and  all will pair with appropriate cuisine. Availability and price will help in choosing which Cabernet is right for you. Need help with that pairing? Check-out:

Benziger Sonoma County 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, $16.99-$18.99, 88 points, has a pleasant aroma, is rich, smooth, and earthy. Though a friend of mine thought it thin (I did not), for these dollars you have a good wine.

Ferrari-Carano Alexander Valley 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, $22.99-$36.99, 88 points, has a pleasant aroma, lush and wonderful, but maybe just too fruit forward for me, but at the lower price, this is a good buy. Also posted on: Winter's Cabin Fever Brings out the Cabernet In Me

Justin Paso Robles 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, $21.99-$29.99, 88 points, is more complex than the others, more a light-bodied wine (That could be the feel of a 13.5% alcohol), but rewards with a fine long finish. Again, Quality, Price, Ratio (QPR) is important, but with these three Cabernet Sauvignon wines, QPR is quite close when found on sale.
