Shhhh… It’s a secret!


Are you into "Legacy" wines, you know - wines with a great pedigree?

If you answered yes, then you need to get your hands on some Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles... This wine's family tree stands tall and proud in forest of California Cabs.

WineCountry.com says: Industry insiders knew that “Napa's cult-popular Caymus Vineyards had long produced a second Cabernet Sauvignon called Liberty School from Paso Robles fruit that sells for a steal compared with its first label. Quality remains high - and bottles can be snapped up for an astounding $10 apiece.”

WineInsider.com says: “Talk about great genes! The Liberty School line of wines was started by Chuck Wagner of Caymus Vineyards. Chuck bought grapes for his 2nd label, Liberty School, from the Hope Family. Caymus wines sell for mega bucks and are highly collectable. I haven’t really figured it all out but, it seems the Caymus Family and Hope Family had a very close relationship. The Caymus, Treana and Liberty line of wines all seem to be sharing the same bed.”

Wine Enthusiast has awarded Liberty School a “Best Buy” designation saying, “A lot to like in this Cab!”

Well, even if you’re not a ‘second label’ chaser you’ll love this wine with its great up front aromas of raspberry, chocolate, cherry and black currant and smooth, full body with ripe berry fruit flavors. With terrific structure, firm tannins, plenty of fruit – and a legacy like Caymus, what else do you need? 
Widely available - World Market $13
