International Cabernet Sauvignon Day-Sept 3!

There is much to celebrate this week. International Cabernet Sauvignon Day calls for a special offer and a special cocktail!

John Cabernet Sauvignon is a great choice, especially for a party. Sourced from Central Coast vineyards, traditional Cab aromas of tobacco and cedar are enriched by dark chocolate and black cherries on the palate. Beautifully balanced acidity, neutral oak, soft tannins and an amazing price at $13.99/btl make this an excellent-value crowd-pleaser.


For the Cabernet aficionado Buy-Rite has a huge selection of premium wines. You'll find these beauties at the best prices in the area.


Bartenders at heart, try this delicious Cabernet cocktail to begin your celebration, or finish off the party with it as dessert!

I used Luxardo Cherries (for the frozen cherries and for the juice), Bacardi Rum, and a splash of LaMarca Prosecco instead of the sparkling water.  The optional mint is a great addition.
