Freelander comes from the perfect combination of Mike O’Connell, who seems to have the Midas touch in creating value driven brands and all-star California winemaker Larry Levin. Together, they’ve given birth to a number of brands you may have heard of, Pavillon, Grayson Cellars, Hanging Vine and Block Nine.
The Freelander wines are made to be immediately appealing and user friendly and they do just that. This Cabernet Sauvignon is not only a big, inviting Cabernet, it’s one of the highest scoring under $20 California Cabs you’re going to find.
The grapes for the wines are selected from several sources throughout California Larry makes the wine in St Helena. With over 30 years of experience making wines in Napa for Quintessa and Turnbull, the big, bold California style is what he excels at making. He takes great pride in producing wines that are driven by their varietal character and have balance, all while providing tremendous value.

A fun, friendly expression of Cabernet Sauvignon that still provides the depth and complexity that has become expected from the variety. Enjoy notes of red and black cherry, blackberry, crushed red roses and violets, freshly turned earth, black pepper, toasted wood, nutmeg, cardamom and star anise. Fine-grained tannins add a smooth, silky texture; elevated acidity provides a freshness that rides right down the center of the palate, pointing toward the long, lingering finish
