Pleasantly surprised for the price! Well balanced, smooth with just enough tannins to be enjoyed by itself or with a hearty winter dish. Great flavor!

Wet earth, wood. Dark berries, vanilla ice cream. Some sweet spices. Med-high tannins/acidity.

Surprisingly enjoyable Cab - it's Christmas Eve and was given as a gift...berries, a bit sweeter than normal for a Cab, but very mellow and drinkable...

Nose of salty bacon, powerful alcohol, with a slight hint of chocolate. Taste of sour cherries, cranberries, spicy, woody, with a hint of sweetness. Low tannins makes it easy to drink. Sweetness in the aftertaste, but not too much complexity.

I had the 2013 before, and thought it was good value. I enjoyed this one too, and it's still a good value, fruit is cherry and black cherry, with vanilla and wood, some earth, and a hint of cola. Acidity is moderate, and tannins are low to moderate. Good table wine.

Needs a little time to open up. A little pricey at $43 but we were at a restaurant.
