Cabernet Day August 30th 2012 – Celebrating everything Cabernet


Cabernet Day August 30th 2012 – Celebrating everything Cabernet….

In preparation for the 3rd Annual Cabernet Day I decided to review all my earlier Whine and Cheers For Wine posts.  Surprisingly many included Cabernet as a topic; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Blends etc. and include wines from California, South Africa, Chile, Argentina, Australia France and more.

In commemoration and celebration of this special day I have decided to repost my reviews via Twitter throughout the day of August 30th referencing #CabernetDay.  Please join me in revisiting these posts and by sharing your own.  I too will be checking posts on Twitter by searching #CabernetDay throughout the day.  I am looking forward to learning more about the varietal and even more so seeing what everyone will be drinking in celebration.

To join the crowds and or register to follow #CabernetDay events; check out;

For those of you not on Twitter or for those of you just looking for some Cabernet information; I have listed below all the references available on  Whine and Cheers for Wine. If you prefer to do the search yourself just type in Cabernet Day in the Search portion of our site. Please visit, share your thoughts and see what other posts get your attention.  ¡SALUD!

1-Stags Leap Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon

  1. Great question and one that has surprisingly stumped me 🙂 The answer is probably that I am still searching for it LOL. That said; on the high end the Stags Leap Artemis is out of this world as is Provenance [which I have not written about], mid range the Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve and LaMadrid Reserve are delicious. And on the lower end of the spectrum I was very impressed with the Cycles Gladiator, Hands and also LaMadrid non-reserve. Sorry I couldn’t be more specific but I guess if $ was no issue I would pick the Artemis from my previous wine tastings. Any other recommendations for me?
    Thank you.

  2. Have you ever had Old River, Ponderosa Vineyards from the Sierra Foothills? Terrible name, I know. Butthat Cab was very memerable, with black cherry, clove, and coffee flavors. It had smooth tannins and a wonderful balance. If you ever get a chance to try it, I’d love to know what you think of it.
