Chalone Cabernet Monterrey County 2008

Chalone, Chalone ..I know thee well. I was practically weened on Chalone wines…Well not really..But when I lived in Manhattan Beach many years ago , a friend turned me on to their chardonnay…and I’ve enjoyed their wines ever since..despite the fact that they used to be a much smaller winery. This inexpensive cabernet  has an earthy nose with rich berry flavors on the tongue. It needed to be opened about 20 minutes to loosen up a bit.5cent sale at Bevmo makes it about $7. a bottle.. Hard to find a decent cab like this close to this price.
