"Cheap & Cheerful" nice wine. Not my idea of a big cab but perfectly serviceable. Lacks rich mouth feel despite 14% abv. Don't mind screw cap at all. Love the Smith labels!

Best wine I've found in a while, goes down super easy just like my pee

Light, with a velvety finish, like it wants to be dark but just can't.

Smooth wine, a bit too smooth for a cab sauv, sweet too

Big fruit up front but it mellowed out a bit as it opened. Better with the food than on its own.

For a young wine it's great. Fruit forward, hints of huckleberry, slate with perfectly well integrated Oak

Granade in the bottle. Full of ripe and fresh red frutis: cherries, black currant. Body ballanced with acidity, harsh tannins, very drinkable. Full bodied. Decent CS!

Great fruit character. A bit heavy on the tannin but a really good, drinkable cab. Will revisit this one several times

Too much acidic, not mature, over priced
