A great wine. I loved it when it was first released. I found one at auction and it still had that "thing" that caught my attention so long ago. Fresh and beautiful at 37.

Hints of fine winter cherry recently pulled from the tree, top notes of onion and guacamole, contextual clues of the palpable anticipation of streaming the full Justin Bieber album, the saltiness of 2 teardrops from nearly missing the sunset but then pulling them back when you realize the lighting after sunset is perfection. Apple, lemon, cherry, and grapes (duh). Essence of winter Oreo.

Licorice, cherry and dark fruit. An ok every day wine. A bit simple due to it having a short finish.

Great medium cab...on the fruity side and goes well with most types of food.

Another good low price wine from Chateau St Michelle. Nice flavor, soft alcohol presence, clean finish. Can't be beat for $12/bottle.

In a few more years, I feel like this will develop into a very very good wine. Love it already! Going to buy half a case for storing :)
