Cabernet Sauvignon California by Cannonball 2018 has the best characteristics of traditional California and old-world Bordeaux.

This wine … makes a splash.
Okay, we know you’ve heard that one before – but it’s true. Typically concentrated and round with dark fruit, cassis, smoke, spice and a bit of chocolate, this balanced, well-made, value-priced California Cabernet will be a hit alongside spicy ribs, grilled steak or any other seasonal dish you may be cooking up. This is truly a fun and toasty red.
