AG Pick Under $20: B.R. Cohn Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon

I’ve been a fan of B.R. Cohn’s wine since visiting the Sonoma winery earlier this year. Their 2006 Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon is one of my favorites. It’s a big and tasty wine that is a great value, costing around $17.

The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Estate Vineyard and other North Coast vineyards. It’s aged in French oak for 18 months.

The taste is of ripe black fruit: blackberries, cassis and black cherries. The oak aging gives the wine a touch of vanilla on the smooth finish. It’s a lush and full wine that’s very pleasant to drink. It pairs nicely with beef, lamb and well-spiced chicken and pasta dishes.

B.R. Cohn makes other delicious wines. My two favorites are the Sonoma Valley Zinfandel and Moose’s Red, which is named after Bruce Cohn’s dog. These wines cost around $26 and $40 respectively. Click here to see my earlier article about visiting the winery and tasting these wines.
