Yarden's 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon ($32) was by far the winner of the tasting: it blew everyone in the office away with its balance of berry and pepper. "Way better than Manischewitz! A great alternative for traditional families," one sipper declared. We loved its almond and toasted nut fragrance, its combination of blackberries and peppery, spicy notes, and the wine's velvety structure.
