Drank 9\20\20. Nice with a bacon cheeseburger.
Medium nose of black and blue fruits with some spice and a bit of herbaceousness as well. Big, but balanced with cassis, blueberry, and a bit of spice all backed by medium plus tannins. Long finish and great balance. I can't think of too many good cabs for under $20, and this one delivers for closer to $10. Incredible value.

Beautiful honey amber color. Elegant aromas of toffee, caramel, red apple, baking spice, oiled leather, and dried figs. Palate coating mouthfeel. Flavor profile expands upon the above with subtle citrus notes, honeycomb, and bitter chocolate. Water brings out the warmth of cream of wheat and other malted flavors. Long, luxurious finish. Excellent dram! — 7 days ago
First, I’d like to thank @Severn Goodwin for this excellent example of Rosé in our bottle exchange.
The nose shows leaner, candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, fine white to grey volcanics, sea spray with candied pink florals.
The palate is; round, lush, juicy and smartly balanced. Classic French Rosé. Ripe with high viscosity. Candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, tangerine, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, white spice w/ a ginger lean, some of the very best fine white to grey volcanics I’ve had, sea spray with candied pink florals. The acidity is a cool, rushing river. The rich, elegant, well polished, lush finishes with excellent minerality that persists equally with lush fruitiness.
