A gift from a friend. Just no. Coconut, vanilla, subdued sweet fruit, overcooked maple syrup. Disgusting.

Dark and sticky. Quite dense. Intense muddled fruit with heavy acidity. Decanted for a day and it was worth it. Drink it slightly cool.

Exceptional wine. Well worth the price point. Highly recommend trying this if you see it.

Color of dark ruby, yet quite clear. Nose of sweet vanilla, a bit tobacco leaves, actually some oak barrel and cork, and whisky like sherry wood, not fruity at all. Taste on the other hand has good fresh berry flavors, fresh grapes, a bit spicy and peppery, mellow tannins and cherry jam. Aftertaste of some more tobacco leaves, good lasting flavors, sherry and a bit mineral, tasty, round and above average.

We absolutely loved this Cabernet. A superb value at its $20 price point. Tastes like it costs three times as much. Superbly aromatic for a Cabernet with loads of dimension and structure. Lingering velvety finish. Must have more!!

Nice Cab. A bit acidic and needs an hour or so to soften to where I could enjoy it. I’m always happy to report a wine like this that easily outperforms many other Cabernets selling for twice the price. Recommended.

Good for the price, rich, fruity, hint of vanilla and spice, and dare I say, a bit ...oily? I’d buy it shrink, I’ll bet it will age very nicely.
