“Longtime California winemaker Dennis Hill teamed up with entrepreneur Yoav Gilat in 2006 to found this cheeky brand, and their bright, blueberry-inflected Cab has proved a perennial best-buy. ”
Ray Isle on Cannonball Cabernet, Food & Wine, Nov 2017
Cannonball’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a west coast revival of a classic style. It has the best characteristics of traditional California and old-world Bordeaux. Winemaker Dennis Hill’s deep knowledge of the best California Cabernet Sauvignon climates, soil types and vineyards, coupled with long-term relationships with premiere growers, allow the winery to source the finest grapes and make delicious wines year after year. You could say that 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 Cali-Cab will be a hit alongside spicy ribs or grilled steak. This is truly a fun wine.
“Soft plum nose; juicy and savory with bright plum fruit and a hint of ripe sweetness; smooth, lush and long with balance and style.”
