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.

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
