This wine is 100% Cabernet and aged 15 months in barrel. It pours a deep garnet purple in the glass and almost immediately cherries and blackberries leap out of the glass, with hints of mocha and butterscotch. The palate is bright and full of flavor, red and dark fruit surrounded by hints of chocolate, spices and again a hint of caramel. The finish is long and smooth. A real terrific effort from start to finish! The wine is drinking fabulous now, and should still be great five years from now. Enjoy on it's own, with cheeses, or a big juicy steak 30$ CAN

Light purple in the glass. Not a lot on the nose to decipher, but has some spice on the nose with a lingering finish.

Wow! This might be the best I’ve had this year with Cabs - for the price.

Yardstick 100% cabernet sauvignon. 2015. Ruth’s Reach. No bouquet, but the initial palate is incredible. I was expecting much less. My best friend who owns LaFiesta Mexican Restaurant says “Here, try this!” It starts with blackberries and raspberries followed by chocolate and a touch of smoke. It has a slight sour finish, but overall very good.

Very nice Cabernet. Nice texture, some crystal-like tongue feel. Blackberry. Medium weight for a cab. I lil thick on the finish. This was enjoyable!

Fruity in a good way. Smooth with no aftertaste. Perfect amount of dryness for me
