My Rating 86 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a red, purplish rim.
Fruity on the nose with blackberries, cherries, plums, currants, vanilla, wood, licorice, vegetables, spices and black pepper.
Medium plus in body, Smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and nice long legs.
Fruity and dry on the palate with cherries, blueberries, plums, oak, vanilla, tobacco, licorice, spices, bell pepper, nutmeg, and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish, with velvety tannins and black pepper.
A nice California Cabernet. Very enjoyable by itself. Might need some time in the bottle to get rid of the vegetables on the nose and palate.
A little disappointing, though. I expected more out of it from all the reviews I saw. Good quality, but not a $20 bottle of wine. Very drinkable now yet a bit unbalanced. It was good right out of the bottle, but 30 minutes in the decanter made it better.
Great for a party, but there are so many other wines that are more affordable.
14.7% alcohol by volume.
