Every month I stack a wine at the front of my department and declare it my pick for the month. I normally post it on this blog, but lately, I have been remiss in my duties. Let’s call this a fresh start. I tried this little gem recently and was quite impressed with what I found for twelve bucks.

2019 Renegade Wine Co. Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley, WA)… $12.

Aromas of currants and tobacco with a hit of dark red flowers and licorice. Currant notes big-time on the palate, lifted by nicely integrated acidity and supported by structured, approachable tannins. Red flower notes sneak in on the mid-palate and linger with the currant notes on the finish where there is a kiss of cranberry. A solid food Cab that could easily be enjoyed all by itself. I would pair this with burgers, steak, roast, or spaghetti with a red sauce and some meatballs. A solid Cab at a stupid price. (B-/B)

I am a blue collar wine guy who has been in the biz for over twenty years. I work at a store in a tourist destination stop. I work hard at finding the best wine for the money. I love the challenge of learning my customer's palate so I can find the best wine for them, whether it is Petrus or white zinfandel. Cheers!
