We looked long and hard for a terrific under $25
California Cabernet—one that meets our
standards and tastes far better than its price.
The 2010 vintage of One Rock Cabernet Sauvignon
is a luscious Cab -- a classic example of Alexander
Valley's intense, lively style. Forward fruit character
of black cherry and blackberry dominates the aromas
with underlying grace notes of dark chocolate and
black pepper. In typical Alexander Valley style, the
bright fruit is nicely supported by a restrained oak
character. The palate is rich, round and lush, seam-
lessly pairing the cherry and berry fruit with a hint
of spice and vanilla. The fine-grained tannins meld
into a persistent, lingering finish.
