Viano Vineyards' Cabernet Sauvignon is a masterful showcase of what Contra Costa, California, does best: delivering world-class Cabernet Sauvignon at prices that defy expectations. John Viano, a craftsman of the vine, has created a regal blend that is both soft and robust, brimming with deep forest fruit and blackcurrant flavours. Priced at just £18, this Cabernet is a revelation in value. It's a classic Californian Cabernet that balances ripe, rounded fruitiness with substantial tannins and a refreshing backbone of acidity, tying all the elements together seamlessly. Wine critic Jamie Goode lavished it with a 94-point rating, praising its sweetly aromatic nature and the supple, bright red berry and blackcurrant palate, underlined by great concentration and a delightful freshness and texture. If you're after the quintessential Californian Cabernet experience without the Napa price tag, Viano Vineyards' Cabernet is the unequivocal choice.
