Tasting Notes

Lionel Latorse is the third generation owner of this property. His 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in sand, gravel, clay and limestone in Entre Deux Mers. Tasting notes from the winemaker: "Unoaked, low alcohol and fresh. This Cab Sauvignon is showing all the fruit potential of the grape with blackcurrant and a hint of violet. The ripe tannins allow a very silky and elegant finish."

    I enjoyed this wine very much for what it is. Not for what it isn't. Reminiscent of a Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley, and it works in similar ways. It is of a light color, medium-light body, floral and very fresh, and I would even put a bit of a chill on it to drink outside on an summer day.

    I often tell people that the real value, bang-for-your-buck, go-to, everydayday drinking Cabs are mostly found outside of California despite the fact that we are in Sonoma's backyard. Well here is a perfect example of what I mean, the 2015 Gabaron Bordeaux for under $10. This bottle is all Cab and while it showcases the ripeness and fullness of the vintage, being vinified all in stainless steel gives the wine a lovely freshness. Super easy to drink with lovely red fruits, balancing acid, and a low ABV at 13.5%, this is a perfect BBQ, pizza, Tuesday night tacos kind of wine.

    This is a tasty Bordeaux value that's great for weeknight drinking. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is soft and supple on the palate, driven by ripe, red fruit, a touch of minerality and floral notes. Give it a shot!

    I score it 5 of 5 for value. One of the first of the soft and fruit forward Bordeaux values from the great 2015 vintage. Toasty aromas and red fruit flavors. a little modern but for $10 a great buy for parties.
    Drink from 2017 to 2020
