Finding this a little hollow for the $30 price tag. Very pleasant, well balanced nose, with pepper and dark fruit. But lacks something on the palate. Not memorable.

Cherry, cassis, plum, cedar, licorice, mint, tobacco, vanilla, touch of leather. A lot of amazing flavors going on but the alcohol is very present.

Great Alexander Valley Cabernet for the price. Blackberries, raspberries, cloves with a touch of oak.

It's a decent cab but has a hint of sweetness I'm not a fan of.

Dark cherry, blueberry and hints of vanilla. Very smooth tannins and a lingering finish.

Aromas of cherry, oak, and some raspberry notes. Rich slightly sour cherry taste and medium finish. Decently balanced as well.
