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.

Blackberry, oak, vanilla, spices - a little strong, which for me is a big win. Your Dad's cigar box meets a fruity cab in the best way possible. Fantastic with truffle mac n cheese and yoga pants.

Very distinctive blackberry and cherry flavored. Smooth and easy to drink. Some bite in the after taste.
