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.

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.

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.

Nose: sweet dark fruit, maybe black currants. Palate: cherries, very smooth, mellow taste
