Drink This | B-Side Cabernet Sauvignon

I could drink the whole bottle.

Looking for a delicious red to go with your grilled meats this July 4th weekend? You need to buy B Side Cabernet. It's a delicious, inexpensive Cabernet Sauvignon made on the "flip side" of Napa Valley, away from the famous wineries on the west side of the valley, and it's a great buy for those in the know.

The winemakers, Don Sebastiani & Sons, state on their website: "Vines in these areas are grown in thin volcanic soils, which yield smaller, more concentrated fruit, producing Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignons with classic berry and cassis flavors."

And this Cab does have very rich, deep berry undertones. I tried a glass or two at a wine tasting at Strip, in Avon Lake, OH. I prefer dry red wines, and this one delivers, with hints of oak and smokiness brought on from aging over two years in French oak.

You can find it on for $21.95, or hopefully at a restaurant near you!
