Sophia’s Cuvee ~ $30
This is a magnificent Bordeaux blend (primarily Cabernet). It has all the desired characteristics of an expensive California Cabernet, but at a much more reasonable cost.
Open this up and pair with a grilled beef filet, and you won’t be disappointed! In fact, a meal worthy of royalty awaits you.
This has Cabernet Sauvignon-driven flavors of ripe summer blackberries, black currants, cassis liqueur and smoky oak. It’s dry with smooth tannins, and it shows lots of class. With 8,000 cases produced, it should be relatively easy to find.
