TVG teams up with the Vino Geek to compile a list of top 5 Cabernet-Sauvignon’s to impress!
Every Versatile Gent needs a good Cabernet Sauvignon in their cellar for that occasion when you want to impress someone. Be it your new girlfriend, your boss or a potential business partner, here’s a list of 5 Cabernet’s that will definitely impress, but most importantly not break the budget.
2012 Vinomofo Old Money Cabernet Sauvignon
Starting off is a new release from online wine retailers Vinomofo that comes from a quality parcel of grapes from the Coonawarra region. Vinomofo have a history of both selling and making great wines at great prices, and this one is no exception. The first release of a Cabernet from the lads, this has been made with plenty of attention and this certainly shows through. Big and ballsy, this is not one for the faint hearted but definitely a wine that will impress even the biggest wine connoisseur. Maybe one for the boss when you’re going to ask for a pay rise… “Now give me Money, That’s what I want…”
$15/bottle exclusively available from www.vinomofo.com
2011 Xanadu Cabernet Sauvignon
A gold medal winner at the 2013 Royal Melbourne Wine Show, this will win you Gold Medals with whoever you’re trying to impress for sure. A cult producer from the Margaret River region in Western Australia, Xanadu are renowned Nation and World wide for their Cabernet’s. This is a wine that is really fruity but very finessed. A really well rounded wine that will give you the confidence to pour this into anyone’s glass.

2012 Leconfield Cabernet Sauvignon
An iconic producer located in two of the best Cabernet regions in Australia (Coonawarra and McLaren Vale) produce this bold beauty that speaks for itself. The flagship of the label, a great wine to either drink now or cellar for the next 10 years. This is a seriously smooth and sexy wine that will be sure to give you some points with your girlfriend.

2011 Wynns Coonawarra Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon
This is probably one of the most consistent wines I have ever seen. Year after year Wynns consistently produce this wine at a great price point and quality. This is your sure thing of Cabernet’s Gents! I’d highly suggest everyone have a few of these in the cellar for that occasion when you’re just not quite sure what to put on the table.

Lake’s Folly Cabernet
This is the only winery that I’ve ever seen have a waiting list for their mailing list. This is super hard to get a hold of, but this is the ultimate wine to impress. Any occasion you have that needs a special bottle, this is your wine. From the Hunter Valley, the grapes that make up this cult vino are top notch and I’ve actually never heard anyone say a bad word about this wine.
