Barney Bruce and Ron

Three California Cabernets Under the Gun

In this week’s show we invited an old friend, Barney Menard, to join us. Ron makes his first appearance and we put three $20 to $25 California Cabernet Sauvignons to the test. We had two winners, one was more silky and smooth, that we recommend drinking on its own and another we found would likely go great with something on the grill.
