Sight: very dark, ruby red outer towards the glass. Becomes a more dull red upon swirling. Heavy effervescence upon pour. Smell: very light smell. Black cherry, current. Other than that not a whole lot of nose going on. Taste: acidity is medium plus. Somewhat dry.

Front end smoke from the bourbon aging. Settles with a very clean finish without being dry. Heavy notes of cherry and vanilla.

Initial taste of mild cherries. Soft middle dark fruit dryness. Delicate finish of dry plums and cherries.

A great bottle to share with visiting sister. Moderate nose and strong cherry presence. Best paired with a hearty meal but perfectly fine on its own.

Nice Cab for the price. Mellow and you will immediately taste the black cherry. Not a strong nose
