Paul Dolan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
California – Mendocino County
My Rating: 90 points
It can be hard finding a robust California Cabernet in the sub $20 range, but Costco has been getting in several cabs from Mendocino County that are terrific values. Big and bold, Paul Dolan has the drying tannins that pair nicely with a marbled ribeye. At this price, it’s worth stocking a few bottles for grilling steaks at home.
Deep ruby, cherry, cedar, drying tannins.
Pair with: grilled ribeye, braised short ribs, sharp cheeses
Perfectly Seared Steakhouse Steaks
