In this episode of IntoWineTV, host Lisa Kolenda and wine experts Bartholomew Broadbent, Michael Broadbent, and Chris Tavelli convene at Yield Wine Bar, San Francisco's only "green" wine bar, to taste and discuss 24 different organic wines under $30 from across the globe.
Theme: Organic and "Green" Wines under $30
Wine: 2005 Beckman Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon ($22).
Editors Note: The Beckman Vineyards web site lists this wine for $30 per bottle. We found it retail for $22 which explains the discrepancy.

Notes -The 2005 growing season was great for Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2005 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is highly structured with intense dark fruit. Jammy black cherry aromatics, red berry and currant fruit flavors and accents of chocolate and cedar balance this wine from start to finish. Though ready to drink now with your favorite italian food or chocolate covered cherries, this wine's structure will allow it to age for up to a decade.
