The Sierra Foothills is one of our favorite regions to find new treasures. Entirely appropriate, given its location at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains – the heart of the California gold rush. Here amidst rolling oak-studded hillsides and long forgotten 49er ghost towns, about 100 boutique wineries continue a tradition of viticulture that dates back to the 1840s. Almost all of them are too small for nationwide distribution, but lucky for you, our reach is deep!
We love this AVA because of its reasonable land costs, great sun/wind exposure, and prime drainage – all the check marks for “California hidden gem.” Lot 736 comes to us from a beautiful winery located a short trek from historic Route 49. Produced from estate vineyards at 1300 ft elevation under the hands of a winemaker whose resume is littered with 90+ scores and gold medals from his work in Napa, Sonoma, and the Sierra Foothills alike, this is an elegant, aromatic Cabernet that the value hunters will feel very good about each time they pop open another bottle. Sold at the original winery for just over $30, it's available here for under half the price!
This wine is great tasting and now the price just got even better. For the price, this wine can't be beat. Let it breather a bit. Highly recommend!
All Around Utility Player
This is a pretty balanced medium body cab. All the nose & palate hallmarks, but not as big as some cabs lovers might look for. Lot 736 is a nice all-around utility player ready to come off the bench in a cannot-fail situation. Great value at this price.
A very nice smooth Cab, particularly for this price. Will definitely repurchase.
Very nice. Tasty. I enjoyed it.
Great value for the price point
Great value for the price. Nice dry, but not too dry, finish.
This is a great value for the quality. Some fruit, tannins, and a very well rounded cab
The More you Decant the Better
Decant, Decant. This wine really opened up after a day of rest. Truly can appreciate when you give a wine the time to get some air.
Good Value Cab
This is a very good cab for a great price. I wouldn't put it in the class of the Napa cabs, but at less than 1/2 the price, it's a wonderful stand-in if you are keeping to a budget. Full bodied, lots of fruit, with just the right amount of oak.
Great for the money
Winner for high value low cost. This has become our week night go to wine with dinner.
