2009 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon
February 10, 2012 - Norman Bentley
This year for the Super Bowl, we went to school. Liberty School, that is. Good football, good food, and good wine made for a very enjoyable Super Bowl evening. The wine was the 2009 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon, and it went all the way for a touchdown.
Located in Paso Robles, in San Louis Obispo County, California, the Hope family has been producing Liberty School wines since 1990. Paso Robles is a warm inland climate shielded from Pacific Ocean breezes by the coastal mountain ranges. The Liberty School wines have been consistent in quality for the last two decades and are marked by their traditional style, at a value price.
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was scored a 90 by the "Wine Enthusiast" with the comment, "Elegantly constructed, it is one of the best Cabernets of the vintage at this price." The wine has abundant fruit which smacks of black currant and black cherries, which flow into a lengthy finish, showcasing sweet and mild tannins, which sail on into the night. It was really too good for a Super Bowl party, but it was a real treat.
The Liberty School Cabernet would pair well with any grilled meat, or would be excellent after dinner, with fruit and extra sharp Vermont white cheddar cheese! Norm's score is 87.
Price: $12 - $16
WINE - God's proof of his love for humanity
