Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Much lighter in ruby colour than expected from a young Cabernet Sauvignon. This "lightness" travelled on through to the nose and palate. Fairly low in aroma, noting: red currants, strawberries, cherries, dirt, butterscotch and an herbal characteristic which seemed like a combination of dill, cilantro and bay leaf. A dry wine, with medium+acid, low+body, medium-tannins, medium+alcohol, and [again] not a lot coming through on flavours: cherries, red currants, cranberries, green pepper, smoke and wet earth; ending short and bitter. This is definitly not a typical Cabernet Sauvignon but worth the try. This wine does not need any additional aging nor would it benefit from doing so; drink now. A regional food pairing would work well here: Mexican beef/pork dishes with lots of ingredients and flavours (e.g. Mole, tacos, enchiladas). Fried foods, beef jerky and cured game could also work.
Carla rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A pleasure for a great price. Fruity and medium bodied. We enjoyed it with homemade guacamole and several cheeses. It paired especially well with Gorgonzola making it taste quite sweet. It was a nice surprise. I easily imagined sipping it on a hot Mexican night.

Natalie's Review

L.A. Cetto Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Guadalupe Valley, Baja California, Mexico: Fleshy ripe black and purple plum aromas with some blueberry jam. The palate is ultra-smooth and delicious with more dark fruit flavours. This is an absolutely incredible wine for the price point. Pair with combination pizza, spaghetti and meatballs or cold cuts.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
