Although I usually avoid Martini wines, this one was a pleasant surprise. A very good balance of fruit, oak and tannin. Blackberry is the predominant fruit. When the wine opens up the finish has a small amount of cigar smoke , vanilla oak and dark chocolate....And of course a surprise spice finish. Odd to be this strong (for a cab) in Cabernet, but welcomed.

Smooth and thick bodied, with deep cherry and Mocha flavors and a rich cocoa finish.

This is a decent wine, 2012. Full bodied with minimal but present tannins. Favors do not punch but good flavored. Recommend if price point is good.

A pretty color of dark ruby with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, black cherries, black plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, mint, alcohol, pencil lead, chocolates, cola, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, vegetables, green herbs and tobacco.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Cabernet Sauvignon from California is drinking very nicely now as a 4 year old, with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and very fruity. Better after 90 minutes of airtime, when tannins and some more structure come in. Good by itself as a sipping wine.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Sonoma County 64%, Lake County 29% and 7% from Napa County.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$21.

Great Cab! Nice violet tone, full bodied with an awesome nose. Red jammy fruit with chocolate and vanilla overtones. Great texture in the mouth with a long sweet finish. Just great

Medium-high acid. Medium tannins. Medium body.

Not mind-blowing or amazing, but not bad. Aroma and taste are typical of a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Rating: I'd drink it again if someone else was buying.

I need to have this again. I thought I'd had it before but now I think I'm wrong and also I wasn't paying enough attention
