Bearable when you’re in a small town in Indiana and it’s from the grocery store. Too sweet for my taste.

A good cab, previously rated

Grill night, pork kabobs, roasted potatoes, tossed salad. With all the turmoil going on in the big city, life is good on the farm.

Really a nice bottle... Not crazy bold, but still has good tannins and mildly sweet. Bought on sale at Whole Foods for $7.99! Really like it.

Jammy at first---mellowed to a luscious, velvety molasses and smoke finish. For $9-12 it's a great deal.

This Cabernet is actually a bit of a blend with 81% Cab, 9% Merlot (and 4 other grape varieties​). However it definitely works and this med bodied wine showcases bright flavors of sweet black cherry and cranberry with nuanced hints of dried herbs, with a light tannic structure to give it a little bite. A great value, and a perfect Monday night wine! ($5.5) [7/17/17]

Medium body cab. Pickled pepper nose. Licorice in the deep. Black cherry as well. Modest mouth, brief finish. Light grip on the back.

Fruity, mildly dry (could be more dry)
