In the last 8 years, we’ve tasted over 2600 Cabernets in our blind tastings – never tasting more than 32 wines in a day. Great wines reveal themselves when given this kind of care and attention.
The 8th Cabernet Shootout again attracted fabulous wines from great producers.


Cabernet Shootout Blind Tasting
Beginning in October, we tasted and assessed 332 Cabernet Sauvignons, Cabernet Francs and Cabernet Blends. Each of the wines was more intensely judged than in standard, broadband competitions.


Cabernet Shootout Finals
After 2 1/2 months of tasting, we met for the finals on December 14th. A wide array of palates emphasizing both traditional and new media gathered to assess the best Cabernets from all over the world at the Cabernet Shootout Finals in San Francisco last Saturday.

The comments and reactions to the wines as assessed by the judges will be accessible on the Affairs of the Vine no later than January 1st.

The Old Mint

The finalists will be showcased at the Cabernet Shootout Challenge at The Old Mint in San Francisco on January 18, 2014.

This event always attracts very interesting red wine lovers from the consumer, media and trade segments.

How does one acquire the results of your Cabernet Shootout 2013? I see nowhere on your site that gives those results…
