The 2015 vintage offering from the same winery as our best-selling, 95pt score/Platinum Medal-winning Lot 524, and every bit as terrific.
Lot 643 is a dynamite value from the hidden gem that is the Paicines AVA, just past the Pinot and Chardonnay vineyards of the Monterey Coast on the other side of the Gabilan Mountains, nestled in the gravel and pebble mélange that comprises the alluvial flows of the San Benito River. Produced by a family of third generation growers from vineyards 1,000 feet up in these ancient alluvial washes, sourced from a $40/bottle Cabernet program, and aged in 35% new French oak.
Nice drinking cab
If you like medium bodied cabs that are not at all tannic, this is for you. Fruit forward. Ready to drink now.
I really enjoyed the fruit notes and integrated oak. No doubt this is the value cab of the year.
Great Value Cab
I'd never had a cab from the Paicines appellation, so wasn't sure what to expect. This wine does not disappoint. Full-bodied with maybe just a tad too much fruit forward. Soft tannins and light oakiness. Drinks well with grilled meats or strong cheeses.
Couldn't Love It
As a daily wine drinker, I love to find wines at this price point that I can enjoy again and again. This one didn't do it for me. The nose and a taste component didn't make me want more than my share of the bottle so it's not one I will come back to. To all of you that loved it, I cede my share to you. Enjoy!
very good value
For $15 this is a great value. This would make an excellent wine to serve with your every day meal that calls for a full bodied wine. Lot 643 will dress up any beef, pork or veal meal (or beef, pork and veal when wife make her excellent meatballs). I would even say this would make hamburgers seem like a fancy meal. I had a grin on my face when I tasted this wine realizing I only paid $15 a bottle. Fruit is very plentiful in the offering. Deep color and a hint of minerals. Very close knit. You will not be disappointed.
This is why I am hooked
Well balanced Cab at a great price. I would certainly order again, had with a steak. Did drink about 45 minutes after opening.
Can't beat this wine for the money. Had a bottle last night.
Well balanced and great value
This is a super fine Cabernet for the price Hope CH keeps it coming. Agree, give it time to breathe
another great cab...
This one is another keeper--full bodied, lush and nuanced. Let it breathe...
