4.1 Vivino Stars (200+ Reviews)
Taste this wine alongside Cabs 2-3x the price and it will have you abandoning all preconceived notions of “under $15”.
Nestled between California’s famed wine regions — Sonoma County and Napa — sits Lake County. It’s untamed, rugged vine farming at the feet of the Mt. Konocti volcano. Orin Swift and Louis Martini regularly utilize premium grapes from Lake County’s rocky, high-elevation vineyards, which bathed in sunshine and rich in volcanic soils produce reds like Abandon’s silky-smooth 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon — exploding with rich, dark, jammy fruit character, round and plushy tannins, and plenty of elegant clove and cedar spiciness.
Wine Enthusiast 90 Points
An element of roundness, almost sweetness, gives this wine a smooth drinkability despite a high tannin level. Deep indulgent blueberry and blackberry-jam flavors are accented by baking spices, cloves and cedar. Best through 2023.
