I still attest it's the only let down in the whole line, but it's not as bad as I remember. A little overpriced. Reminiscent of Primus Cab a d general Chilean terroir. Light red fruit, some moderate acidity, tannin, general softness uncommon in cab. Vegetal flavor profile. Still unimpressed but love the other wines.

Funky nose, overripe blackberry, dewberry, huckleberry - you get the picture. Fruit forward taste with nose evolving into pomegranate, cinnamon and raspberry pie.

Benziger Family Winery was founded in 1980 on the slopes of Sonoma Mountain. Before the sale, the core of Benziger Winery are eight, same generation family members managing every aspect of grape growing and winemaking. Deep red color with aromas of dark red fruit and pepper spice. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with dried herb and spice. Dusty tannins carry to the medium finish ending with cacao and vanilla oak characteristics. Tasting Sample.

I loved it. It was smooth and a hint of sweetness to it made it delicious!

$14 at local grocery store. Wasn't crazy impressive but more taste than alcohol. Would def drink again.

A tad restrained and lacking in complexity, but for $18.99 from the liquor store it is better than wines that it was displayed amongst. With a pronounced acidity, showboating tannins and a medium plus body, this Cab is great for days requiring medium plus effort
