A touch sweet but oaky and smooth as you like. Very good. Gives the impression of being a cab, but it's not. Wolf in sheep's clothing.

Textbook Napa Merlot & Tomahawk Steak. Deep ruby almost bluish color. On the nose, a huge bouquet of blueberry, plum and dried fig. On the pallet there鈥檚 the same big fruit followed by intense vanilla, dark chocolate and oak. This is bold and dry yet very smooth with a soft and silky finish. Great wine, on any day!

Deep dark inky purple with a big nose of ripe cherry and plum with hints of leather and cedar. Big and bold, drinks more like a Cabernet but has silky smooth tannins and ripe fruit. Finished with dried fig and coffee undertones.

Lots of juicy fruit and a deep color. Plenty of flavor. Soft and drinkable. Tasters liked this one.

Here's the good news, the bottle and packaging are very cool and unique, the bad news is it's oaky, hot, and not all that interesting.
