Dark red, almost purple with aromas of jammy dark fruits and big hit of spice. The palate shows blackberry and tart cherry flavors with pepper spice with drying heavy tannins. The wine is full bodied with a spicy oak finish. Not a fan. Tasting Sample.

Had with pork chops. Good flavor, though not as dark red as I expected. Not quite as full-bodied as I like, but still very good.

Not a bad little cab but it's great for those times you have folks over who can drink wine from a box and be happy. $12/bottle.

Deep purple color and medium bodied. High acidity. Ripe dark berry fruit and a touch of oak with medium tannins on the finish. Tasty easy drinking cab. Went well with our BBQ ribs.

Leather and motor oil to the nose...dark cherry raspberry and cranberry to the front pallette..heavy oak overpowering everything through the middle with a pepper at the back..nice acid and tannin balance with medium finish...decanted for 2 hours and i think could age about 5 years.

Blueberry, vanilla, oak, blackberry on nose but acidity is high, not much on tannins either for a Cabernet but for 11 dollars it's not awful.
