Wine of the Week - Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon by Christopher Walters
Produced with fruit from Paso Robles, which is home to the winery operated by Hope Family Wines, and other California appellations, the well-made Liberty School Cabernet reveals ripe casis, black cherry, peppery spice and dark chocolate aromas and flavours. The palate strikes a good balance between fleshy texture and firm tannins, which makes for a versatile wine that works well with or without a meal.

3 STARS - Deep, dark, bright ruby red color. The nose is explosively fruity with waves of raspberry, cherry, and plum leaping from the glass with hints of strawberry, cinnamon, blackberry, and chocolate. The palate is as fruity as the nose had advertised with layers of fresh crushed berries, brown spices, and sweet oak flavors. A nice “everyday” styled Cab.
