30 Jan A good sub-$15 Cab! Josh Cellars 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
Can you trust “best buy” wine lists?
They aren’t 100% perfect.
But when you’re searching for
good bang-for-the-buck wine buys,
“best buy” lists are a great place to start.
It’s Wine Thursday!
our weekly good-wine-at-a-good-price
This week, we’re touting a cabernet
that shows up on numerous “best buy” lists,
Josh Cellars 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon.
I’ll admit that when I’ve been out shopping,
trying to navigate the dreaded wall-of-wine,
I’ve looked right past this one many, many times.
“It’s a sub-$15 cabernet. How good can it be?”
Actually, not bad.
It tastes like vanilla, which is very typical for cabernet.
It also tastes like strawberry and/or blackberry,
which is un-cabernet like.
But it works.
With light (again, by cabernet standards) tannins,
this one is an easy drinker.
We found Josh Cellars 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon
at Whole Foods for $12.99,
at Fred Meyer for $13.79
and at Safeway and QFC for $14.99.
