Jammy red fruit taste mild tannins. Was an estate wine from Livermore, ca. not a great cab but for $15 and under it is what it is. I had the 2018 in 12/2021. I tried it upon opening the bottle and then decanted. Not a noticeable difference.

Had the 2018 in September of 2021. Hints of black cherry and light spice. Coffee overtones were there. Not my favorite cab. Was okay but was somewhat lackluster in body and flavor.

Mild nose of cassis, blackberry, and raspberry, baking spice and light espresso. Medium body. A bit hallow on the mid palate. Supple tannins.
Simple and easy drinking.

Liked. Super easy. Not a lot of depth of flavor but good taste.

Lots of depth. Notes of ripe cherry and plum with soft tannins and undertones of coffee and spice. Pears really well with steak.
