North Coast cab

I have been to this winery although it was a number of years ago. When I heard that the owner was virtually bankrupt I felt like I needed to drink a toast to him with one of his wines-after all, I did really enjoy his wines in the past. This version is the entry level version of his Cabernet, the 'Silver Label' north coast 2009. At about $ 15.00 it is not something I would buy all the time but it represents a really nice red for the money. It is easy to drink, not really tannic and could go with a variety of foods. I'll give it 8 swiggs. You'll find it at Trader Joes. I don't know what will happen with this brand in the future but I hope that it survives the ownership change. This winery is one we don't want to lose.
