This wine is aperfect example of how you can have an excellent red, without spending a fortune. I would compare it to Siverado, Sterling or Silver Oak at 10 times the price. Excellent serving wine for steaks and cheeses/ Bought two cases
Excellent value for the money. Not a '10', but not priced like a '10' either. Great with beef or hearty cheeses.
Washington Post: 08/13/08 The NV Stone Cellars by Beringer California Cabernet Sauvignon ($8; $5 at Total Wine) is a light-to-medium-bodied berry bomb with a chocolate finish and just enough tannin to remind you it's a cabernet.
We'd had the Stone Cellars Chardonnay, which is quite good - we bought it for a cookout in July and were very pleasantly surprised. Now, Consumer Reports rates it a great value. So a couple of weeks back, I picked up a bottle of the Stone Cellars Cabernet, just to see how it compared, quality-wise, with the Chardonnay. It's equally as good - very inexpensive, and needs to breathe for a bit before drinking, but I could decant this and serve it for a nice dinner and I believe everyone would be very pleased with it. It's amazing that a $6 bottle of wine is this good. I rated it 4 stars - if I were comparing it to a bottle of Stag's Leap, Kathryn Kennedy, or Opus One, it'd probably rate a 3, but it's still quite drinkable, and able to prove itself - I rated it a 4 just because it's so affordable.
and the rating given...A bottle of wine needn't be expensive to be good. A nice slight touch of oak with supple tannins lead to a delicate but lingering finish in the mouth. A perfect wine for your summertime steaks by the pool or burgers with the neighbors.
This is an "everyday" wine that I would not hesitate to serve to guests. When asked to recommend an inexpensive cab, this is the one I choose. It has a nice balance of fruit to tannins and nothing in its price range compares. Don't expect a religeous experience - this is about value and drinkability - but I prefer this cab to many costing twice as much.
