I need to quit reading the ratings. This guy was rated a whopping 92, so I was excited. The first sip was very underwhelming but it's growing on me. Having high expectations is ruining my drinking!

Deep, dark, soft tannins. Plum and raspberry, some cherry and some faint tobacco or cigar box. This lacks the long finish and complexity you pay much more for but has quickly become our regular dinner wine with red meats and poultry. Great for the $, love it.

Deep ruby. Nice nose of blackberry plum and strawberry. Palate of blackberry plum and cherry. Lacks depth and body though. Rather one dimensional.

Soft tannin, medium body with classic cherry and plum notes w a hint of vanilla. Indeed very elegant - I like! Goes perfectly w the sweet cherries I picked up at the farmers market today :D

Beautiful dark color! So smooth and tasty. I loved the chocolate and wood notes. The perfect red for me.

Good right out of the bottle. Good legs. Tones of blackberry. Dry. I agree with the other review her that it's not too deep but still very good and very enjoyable. I would buy this again, and company would enjoy it.

Not a bad Cab for $25.. loads of tart blue and Black fruit, green bell pepper, and red apple skin, with medium plus tannins and a bit more acid making it good for the steak we had it with. Felt a little more like cool climate Napa, and from what I learned I was right bc the fruit is mostly Oak Knoll. Good effort.
