California Cabernets $30 & Under

It isn't all that easy to find a good California Cabernet with personality under $30 these days. They are out there, though, and the people want to know what they are! Winemonkey and I have tasted many reprehensible versions but here are ten darlings to pick up for your next gathering -- all available for $30 bucks or under.

1. 2002 Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa)
2. 2004 Palmaz Cedar Knoll Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa)
3. 2001 Terra Valentine Spring Mountain District Cabernet (Napa)
4. 2002 Merryvale Vineyards Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa)
5. 2002 Philippe-Lorraine Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa) *under $20*
6. 2004 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma)
7. 2003 Stryker Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma)
8. 2003 Schug Carneros Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma)
9. 2003 Sebastiani Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma)
10. 2003 Halter Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Paso Robles)

Cheers and Happy Holidays!
