Liberty School 2003 Cabernet

A friend of mine originally turned me on to this wine. I believe he bought it because of the picture on the label or the name, or both. You may not be able to make it out in the picture, but the label depicts a one room schoolhouse type thing.

This wine originates from Paso Robles, California, which is not Napa or Sonoma and therefore is sometimes overlooked as a wine region. The Hope family owns Liberty School as well as the Treana winery, and has been producing wine under the Liberty School label since 1990.

The color is a very dark plum, almost black. The bouquet suggests bowls of fresh ripe grapes, berries and plums - big fruit. The aroma is one of the best parts of this wine. Breathe deep - you'll want to eat it. The taste is very nice - juicy blackberries, with a dry mouthfeel. This is a nice wine to have around and you'll never go wrong serving this with a steak, burger or a pasta with a red sauce. It's a good buy at under $15 a bottle.

Where can I find the old liberty school label? The school house takes up the whole label.
