Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon California
Rubus Project
United States - California

The Rubus Project was created by Fran Kysela as a way to source & sell incredible wines at value prices. All wines in this international project are hand-selected by Fran Kysela. Rubus wines are fruit driven, true-to-type values that over deliver - a true representation of quality for the consumer at an excellent price.

This California Cabernet Sauvignon has rich flavors with a hint of black currant and cherry. The tannins are soft, leading to a smooth finish with a hint of oaked vanilla and a touch of eucalyptus/mint freshness.

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon California is a good value as well and certainly has plenty of Cabernet character, giving up loads of spice, tobacco, and assorted red and black fruits. It’s medium-bodied, with a rounded, easygoing texture and a good finish. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years."
