Broadbent The Auctioneer Cabernet Sauvignon
The hardest wine to source by far is affordable Cabernet. I taste hundreds every few months or so – and they can be absolutely dreadful. In several years of hunting, I’ve only come up with a handful. Chad – but that’s a story in and of itself. Postmark by Duckhorn or Carl Roy are all great options. Nichols provides enormous bang for the buck. But that’s just about it. But today, I’m happy to say we can add another, a Cabernet that was made in the old-school California style that put the region on the map and named after a wine pioneer that helped do the same – Michael Broadbent. Michael Broadbent set up Christie’s wine department in 1966, established Christie’s Wine Auctions, and with Robert Mondavi would hold the first ever Napa Valley Wine Auction is a champion of the region and of wine collecting in general.
