So it’s Sunday, and this Jew (me) is going to make a Sunday gravy like a former Italian girlfriend of mine used to make. My inner chef only awakens in the presence of wine and I picked one to cook with and then drink. I failed at this bi-modal wine attempt. It cooked well, and it drank much like the unpleasant and unappealing grapes that were needlessly fermented into drain fodder. I’m pained by the thought of all the wasted energy and the carbon footprint required to move this stuff from halfway around the world to me. Don’t Retreat; Surrender instead.

Thank you Delectable!!! This was in a clearance bin, and your ratings made me buy! Does not disappoint! A little light for a cab, but like other reviews gonna say it is an easy drinker at the price.

A little light for my taste, but a great wine for the price.

Very easy drinking cab. Not too much dimension but perfectly fine when the restaurant tells you they have only one bottle of red left and this is it
