19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon 2013



PICK OF THE WEEK  learn more

Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction British rogues guilty of a least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by “transportation” began in 1783 and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited.

As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.  This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.

From the Winemaker: “Wonderful paired with a scheme for an evening’s escape, this wine conjures up red currants, dark berries and sweet vanilla oak in a passing smell. Caramel lurks in the back. Firm cabernet tannins and red fruits let the flavor linger after each nip.”


Completly out of box and unique.  Never seen anything like it on the wine market


Rich Dark red


Lots of dark fruit


On the palate, more dark fruits with a hint of vanilla.  Medium bodied. Smooth finish


Pair with grilled red meats, ribs, meat sauced pastas.


At around $9 you will be hard pressed to find anything on the market that tastes this good for your money


Another wonderful Cab for under $10.  The folks at 19 Crimes Winery really got it right with this one.  An absolute pleasure to drink and share.

We are naming it our “Diamond in the Rough” Winner for August.  It will also be our Pick of the Week selection this week and will grace our monthly Best Under $10 List.  Pick one up today!
