Easy drinking cab, on the lighter body end of cabs. Fruit forward and sweet. Can find for about $12 a bottle.

Rich, ruby color and smooth tannins. Too sweet when not paired with food, odd finish.

Nose and palate were very different on this one. Nose had a bit of a metallic influence to it which increased on day two. A bit of tin or copper maybe? It became distracting as it grew on the second day, but was not an issue on day one. Palate was very good. Berries, spices, and smokiness. Structure was balanced. It was definitely dry, but I didn't find the tannins to be overwhelming. I have another bottle and I'm interested to try it again in a year and see if I'm still getting the metals on the nose.

Enough alcohol to be warming and keeps a fruity nose. Some leather. Tannins that can be felt.

I tried this wine the first night and hated it. After some time and a round of decanting it became what others spoke of. Pleasant and silky.

Had with stuffed eggplant. Good, rich, creamy. Not to crisp. Different than other Chards (usually not a fan).
