Review:

One of the most spectacular coffeetable books ever... O'Rear's touch is brilliant." Dan Berger, Los Angeles Times; "This book reflects the magic that happens when you unleash a top talent on a subject he obviously knows well and loves." Bob Krist, Travel & Leisure Magazine; "Cabernet... is a compilation of terrific photographs by a lensman with an appreciation for wine and especially for offbeat images." Harvey Steinman, Wine Spectator; "Cabernet... is a beautiful, beautiful book." Miles O'Brien, CNN Atlanta; "Charles shows us scenes, views, and the innermost spirit that you rarely see in print." Robert and Margrit Mondavi, The Robert Mondavi Winery; "O'Rear blends the beautiful geography and the cultural heritage of the Napa Valley with the same skill that the winemakers he photographs bring to their art." William Allen, Editor-in-Chief, National Geographic
