Very good value wine. I liked the flavor. Maybe a bit boozy and oaky but I like it.

Very pretty cherry nose. Cherry and oaky spice on the palate. Nice acidic structure but softer tannins than my preference. Not knowing what to expect I paired with Mediterranean cuisine. The spicy food completely overpowered the wine yet still enjoyable. If you can find this under $20 it's worth a go. Cheers.

A very young cab. It was drinkable, but, with more age would have been even better.
