Tremendous! Great scent, awesome flavors, gets better as it goes. Simply puts a smile on my face. Even better when considering the price point here locally. Automatically becomes a go to red wine as well as reference to new red wine drinkers.

A deep, saturated color leads to lifted aromas of blackberry, cocoa and herby black-currant, which is followed by a rich, layered mouthfeel, loaded with juicy black cherry, cedar, and crème de cassis. This wine is also elegantly structured with fresh acidity and ripe, mature tannins. Enjoy this vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon now and over the next several years.

Apparently Rodney Strong is not strong enough for my taste. It's... ok. I had high hopes, considering I usually don't spend $14 on a bottle of wine, but I was in a celebratory mood. It lacks that aroma that fills your mouth and nose when you take a sip. In a way it's flat like that. It isn't bad either, but there are better options given the price point. It was... meh.

Another Cali #Cab. sour cherry on the nose among with some heat from the alcohol. Barely fruit forward with some dark cherry on the back palate. Hardly any tannins which puts in the mass-market category where most of the California Cabs are. It's a smooth wine that tastes manipulated. No balance between tannins and acidity. I'd only pay $13 for this.
