We put this little charmer head to head on the blind against some Bogle and no one was confused. For the price it's not 4x better than Bogle but it's compact and certainly confident enough. Decent alone, the light grape notes probably swoon well for medium spice and pork chop/currant/sage.

This wine was suggested to me as something similar to Hall's cab, and it's fairly spot on. Where this wine differs is the body...lighter than Hall, no leg time. More of a red purple then black purple, but smells and tastes very similar. Smells of dark heavy cherries and oak. Taste even has a slight mint to it. For the price, I'll definitely buy again.

Quite lovely, concentrated and full-bodied without being overbearing. A very good bottle.

Wow - really nice cab with lots of complexity and nuance. Kathy bought it for about $45 (?) for birthday gift. Definitely a go-to cab now.

Another wine made by Kirk Venge.
Not a bad Cabernet for $40.00, but for the price I would get the 2012 BV Tapestry. K&L has it for $29.00 bought a case, it out classes most $50.00 Cabernet's
