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.

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

Deep crimson in the glass. Fruity on the nose with low smooth tannins on the palette. A bit of spice on the finish. Very good wine at this price point.

Cherries, currant, and olive tapenade. Short finish. Wont impress anyone, but it’s simple, solid and, most importantly, about $12.

Smells so oaks! Tastes milder than expected; like vanilla, almonds, and a little oak. Dry and smooth, silky finish.

Really soft for a Cabernet and a lovely vanilla flavor.
