Nose is nice but I feel it's past its prime. One noted black flavors but no fruit. Tannic but dull.

This wine was a little angular and had favors of wood berries and wasn't balanced. It might need more time.

Third try giving this bottle a shot, thinking it is a good value at $30. Never again.

Classicly herbal cab nose with the promise of a typically American lush body. Beautifully composed on the palate with strong rosemary, thyme, and chocolate while the black cherry truly plays second fiddle. Simply superb
