2005 B SIDE Cabernet
Sauvignon, Flip Side of Napa Valley

• This Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon came as a surprise in both taste and price point. It gets its name from the concept of a major record hit – one side being called “A” (the “hit”) and the opposite side, “B,” is a lesser known song, or wine in this case. Produced by Don Sebastiani & Sons, otherwise known as the “three loose screws,” the B SIDE Cabernet is a definite A-side hit. This is the first year vintage and it’s very drinkable, tasting like a $40-$60 Cabernet, but with an affordable $26-$32 price tag. B SIDE is very fruit forward with black cherry and plum flavors. We started serving this wine just recently and have been receiving a huge “thumbs up” from customers.

Bill is the wine buyer at Wine Konnection in El Dorado Hills.
