Wente Vineyards Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 Review

Drive roughly 45 minutes southeast of Oakland to find Wente Vineyards, a pioneering winery in the Livermore Valley. Established in 1883 and still owned and operated by the Wente family, this is one of the oldest continually operated wineries in the US. The Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon is from a single vineyard site located on the Wente property. The wine is big, savory, oaky, and earthy, with aromas of black currants and lapsang souchong tea. It tastes a little like the uber-expensive Napa Cabernet that your boss ordered at that important client dinner, but it’s only $26. Buy this it if you like cult California Cabs but don't like their three digit prices.
