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

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the M├ędoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
