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.
