Now is the perfect time to start trying high rated Cabernet Sauvignon. These reds are full bodied and packed with tannins, and they please wine drinkers across the world. Cabernet Sauvignon is the most popular wine varietal for a reason; it's great on its own and also amazing in Bordeaux styled red blends, where it is typically the main ingredient. Here are some top choices for Cabernet Sauvignon that have been recently reviewed. Check out our list below or browse some of our must have Napa Valley Cabs under $50:

Faust Cabernet Sauvignon

Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018  - $44.95
Very attractive aromas of blackcurrants, black olives and dark leather with some cedar. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a refined, polished finish. Shows finesse and focus. Grows on the palate. Really delicious now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold. 
-- James Suckling, 94/100

DAOU Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a deep purple hue to go with some classic Cabernet notes of cassis and blueberry fruits as well as chocolate, spicy oak, and lead pencil aromas and flavors. It's rich, medium to full-bodied, and textured.  
-- Jeb Dunnuck, Range 90-92

DAOU Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 - $107.95

A rich, showy style, with a very creamy texture to its mix of warmed vanilla, plum and boysenberry puree, and melted black licorice flavors. A mocha notes swirls around the fruit on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
-- Wine Spectator, 92/100

J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

As we taste J. Lohr’s flagship wine year after year, we notice that it continues to grow in terms of mouthfeel, plushness, and strength of character. The 2019 vintage has a je ne sais quoi that’s partly explained by red winemaker Brenden Wood’s blending practices. Prior vintages incorporated Petit Verdot and Malbec, but this one gives voice to Cabernet Sauvignon at 99%. Mocha and sandalwood are a driving force on the broad, dense palate. Blackberry, Worcestershire sauce, and wet earth work in tandem to bring out a savory character and textural depth.
-- Tasting Panel, 94/100

J Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon

The Prisoner Wine Company Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 - $21.95

The 2018 Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon is packed and well-built. This wine is a prototype of Cabernet Sauvignon. Its steady aromas and flavors of bright black fruit and oak accents stay long and persistent on the palate. -- Wilfred Wong, 90/100

Unshackled Cabernet Sauvignon
Parducci True Grit Cabernet Sauvignon

Parducci True Grit Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 - $14.95

The 2018 Parducci True Grit Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon delivers nicely on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows aromas and flavors of black fruit, savory spices, and tar. Enjoy it with oven-baked lamb shanks. (Tasted: July 18, 2021, San Francisco, CA) WW 90/100

Orin Swift Cellars Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 - $132.95

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head delivers classic notes of warm cassis, plum preserves and mulberries with hints of cigar box, dried bay leaves, pencil lead and truffles. The full-bodied, densely packed, full-throttle palate has a solid structure of firm tannins and oodles for freshness supporting the muscular black fruits, finishing long and savory.
-- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93/100

Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon
Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - $64.95
