Did not like it at all. Only bought it because some car forum guy likes it very much and highly recommended it as a well priced daily driver !

Pretty good! We usually prefer merlot so for a cab this was a hit!

Probably decent if being paired with food but this is NOT a stand alone cab. Does not finish nicely. Also it smells overwhelmingly of alcohol and the smell does not improve with aeration. Forward flavor is decent though.

Plums, cranberry, vanilla and spice on big nose. Flavors of blackberry jam, fig and oak. Finish adds tart dark fruit, spice and hints of leather. Still a decent wine for the price.
