3 Best Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Wines Under $50

If you know Cabs, you already know Napa Cabs are rated among the best in the world. In fact, is just damned hard not to think of Napa Valley when you think about enjoying a glass of wine - and for good reason. The Napa region brought world recognition to California as a world-class winemaking region.

It was back in the 80s when Napa first took off. Word of the quality of wine being produced in the region was spreading, and speculators were scooping up vineyard properties at a frantic pace.

A number of new wineries emerged a short time later, including cult classics, boutique providers, and large scale conglomerates.

Cabernet Sauvignon is the undisputed king of the Napa Valley wine scene, although many Bordeaux blends are coming into vogue.

While you can get many Napa Valley Cabs for less than $50, we feel the following choices blend the best of both worlds: taste and value.

And finally, keep in mind that prices vary rapidly based on season, age, and retailer discounts - so some clever shopping may net you considerable savings.
