A selection from the Costco Wine Advent Calendar.
From 325 mL.
Plum, cherry, leather, and a bit of spice scents lead to flavors of black raspberries, black cherry, and leather. A bit lighter, and higher acidity than what I'd expect from most cabs. I would think this had an Italian varietal blended in, but there is no mention of anything other than cab on the label.

Just loved it.
Light body and light golden colour (12.5% alcohol).
This is a good appetizer wine. Low sugar and acidity.
Marzipan, apple, olive, and lemon zest. Great QPR. 2019 vintage. — a month ago
Look at that color. Color of mushroom stock. And some of the smell and flavor. Also, barley tea and walnuts. Super oxidized. But surprisingly fresh on the palate, with bright acid. Sherried, long finish. Like three minutes of sherry-like finish. This is an oddball but delicious. One of three bottles I have in the cellar and one of the others is clearly not oxidized (actually looks like white wine) so I didn’t have high expectation for this bottle but it turned out to be tasty and enjoyable if you like this sort of thing. Don’t wait any longer though! — 2 months ago
