The nose is mulled fruit and dark chocolate. In the mouth raisin and cinnamon give way to cocoa, molasses, vanilla and clove. The body goes slightly grape juicy at the end, but chewy tannins and moderate acid kick in at the finish. Dark and uneven, I doubt the 2013 will improve much with age and probably needs to be drunk this decade.

Total Wine - $19 - recommended by salesperson. Will rate when I try it. Very good. Smooth, dark fruit taste, non-lingering finish. Will buy again.

Wow a Cab that is surprisingly so light bodied that I thought it was a Pinot. Very enjoyable.
