Had with T bone steak. Very nice pairing. Cherries, blackberry and hint of tobacco..I would reccomend to anyone with a hearty beef entree. Nice tannin, not over powering.

Lovely, very dark, inky and not particularly tannic. Full body, heavy on the tongue an a nice whiff of pepper.

New creation by Austin Hope. I found his PR Cab to be pleasant enough but I think this tastes cheaply made. Asphalt/tar, brooding dark fruits, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate overripe dark fruits and an herbal/vegetal bitterness that lingers, and lingers... We’ll see how it shows in 30-60+ minutes but at this point we’re sitting tight at a 78/100.
.
Edit: After substantial time to reveal itself, I’ve decided to drop the score even lower to a 70, which is more appropriate for the poor quality of juice. My wife (who is always far less critical of wine than I am) even expressed disgust with it, saying “I can drink most things but I don’t want this, it doesn’t even taste like wine.” I have no reservations about this being a “bad” bottle, per se: it’s not. It’s just a bad product. Unfortunate.
