Smooth and tasteful but not worth the price.

Soft dark fruit dryness up front. Quick dry finish.

Lovely (stamped) bottle. Dark ruby color, high+ opacity. Long legs. Oak, smoke, leather on the nose. Oak and dark fruit. Bold wine with notable tannins. Long finish that ends with perpetual dryness. This “Cabernet Sauvignon” is a Bordeaux blend, with small amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Let it breathe an hour.

Wanted to like this - the bouquet started nice but goes straight downhill after that. Harsh, acidic and leaves your mouth feeling “What the h...!?” It definitely needed to breathe more - won’t be a repurchase though...

Very yummy in my tummy. Smooth smell, chocolate and cherry on the nose. Not a strong bite as most cabs. A calm finish that invites another sip.
