This very dark wine offers a jammy plum nose with oak spice and pencil lead. On the palate, there are black plums, currant, vanilla and tobacco. There's a very savory, and rustic, finish. I didn't have very high expectations for a nine-dollar Cab, but this one actually beats them. It's nothing to write home about, but that didn't stop me from posting here.

Drinkable. Not great or memorable but gets better with breathing

A tad seeet, but I like the dry aftertaste. It's the Return of The Jedi of Cali Cab Savs. Not bad, but could have been so much better without the Ewoks...

Nice bouquet, really smooth. A touch to sweet and jammy for my palette but a nice California Cab.
