What really struck me about this Cab was the overwhelming scent of fine tobacco on the nose; this paired well with the soft, velvety tannins of the wine to bring forth a smooth, mellow drink. I would recommend a nice, roasted duck with this wine, as the structure would stand up well to the fatty fowl, but there is not enough tannin to stand against a steak or other rich game. The dark fruit, rich earthy tones, and subtle spice make this a complex steal, at less than $10.

A friend brought over this bottle that was left over at his house the previous night... After tasting this I understood why everyone left his house without finishing the wine.

My perfect drinking wine. Delicious from start to finish after initial letting breathe of 30 min or so.
