Great Cabs Under $30

Great Cabs Under $30

Can you recommend a great Cabernet Sauvignon under $30?  

Might be the question I get asked the most.

Because let’s face it, the mighty King Cab can get pretty darn expensive.

Thankfully, there are plenty of fabulous, undervalued cabernets out there.  And while you may have to venture around the world a bit — because Cabernet Sauvignon really is grown all over the place  — you will be not disappointed.

So I went to see my dear friends at Gary’s Wine & Marketplace in Wayne, NJ.

They picked four wines for us: two just under $30 and two closer to $15!  (And with all due respect, no cartoons on the labels.) All four were fabulous and you’re not going to miss a mortgage payment.

What could be better? So listen below.
