An easy Cab to drink, not dry like cabs can be sometimes be. Fairly versatile for meat and pork dishes and excellent with dark chocolate. Rich, purple color-be careful of stains!

Nice aroma. Dark and creamy with a hint of chocolate. Good on its own or with a nicely seasoned steak. Had the 2013 vintage as part of our July 4th BBQ in 2015.

Looks like a Shiraz. Dark purple color but very Weak nose with muddled flavors. Slight Bing cherry, Blackberry flavors. Low acidity and low to medium tannins. Too bland to pair with food. Inexpensive but can get much better at this price. Not offensive but no reason to buy either.

Deep purple in color, with a full sryupy body, and prodominent flavors of overripened blackberries and vanilla toasted oak. For a wine with the name "Carnivor" the lack of robust tannins made a poor pairing with Strip Steaks. While not un-drinkable it certainly is a disappointing wine. ($9) [2/19/17]

If you love new world and you only want to spend 12 bucks, this is where you want to be. Objectively its over extracted and flabby but sometimes it just hits the spot.

A good nose and nice initial impression that improves once decanted. Under $9 from Macadoodles. A solid choice at the price I landed.
