Aaron: Smokey prunes and cherry on the nose with a nice chocolate flavor. Some subtle vanilla and hints of berries consolidated on the palate into a semi-ripe dark fruit basket. Good tannins and a nice body round out this full cab without making it overbearing. This is drinkable but complex enough for a wide variety of drinkers. 92 points.
Teri: If you are searching for a wine that is easy to find and good quality for the price, this is a great “go-to.” With a nose of dark fruits, this wine is full and structured with a nice round mouth flavor with strong but smooth tannins. I had a difficult time picking out one distinct flavor (mostly leathery pepper with dark black cherry), but full and flavorful nonetheless. A slight “greenish” to the finish but a strong contender for an everyday drinking wine that will also stand up to hearty means and strong flavored cheeses. 90 points for affordability and flavor.
