Liberty School California Cabernet Sauvignon, 2003

This is a wine you may have seen at Cost Plus World Market or other stores for $10 to $12. It's a Cabernet you can bring home and drink that night or keep for three or four years, as I did with this one. For my taste, it has improved with that short-term aging and is perfect for drinking right now.

Deep, plummy red. Smells ripe, and it is: currants, plums, chocolate and sweet spices. Has a lot of Paso Robles traits, and that's where Liberty School is located. The appellation though is California so at least some of the grapes come from elsewhere. The wine is soft and friendly but every inch a California Cabernet and perfect with rib eye steak
