Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting 5/6/16

Cabernet is the king of the red wine world and we are going to try some Cabs from all over the state not just Napa Valley.  We will visit Napa, Paso Robles, Alexander Valley, Mendocino and the Suisun Valley.  Most have good scores if that’s of interest to you and one actually won our Silver Oak blind tasting last vintage!  You pick out the winner.
