Dark ruby in color with a dirty reddish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, sweet strawberries, cherries, currants, licorice, wood, spices, light vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, alcohol, mocha, earth and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a simple California Cabernet from the North Coast region. Not fully balanced, but drinkable nonetheless by itself or with food. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. A little hot at the back of the throat, but the tangy finish makes it interesting.

A good everyday wine and good
for parties. I liked the nose better than the palate.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins.

13.5% alcohol by volume.



$13.

This cab is unexpected for this price. Soft rounded tannin, medium to high body with dark fruits flavor. Delicious wine!

Overly dry at first. Spicy but smooth. Very balanced.
