"Black violet color. Jammy aromas of blueberry oatmeal bar, chocolate covered cherries, and peony with a round, crisp, fruity full body and a warming, nuanced, long leather, mulberry, salted caramel, and earth finish with earthy, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A delicious, intriguing cabernet with shining fruit and earthy accents."

"This is a wine full of toasty cedar, fresh black currant, and green mint aromatics. The palate combines these flavors with a touch of dark chocolate and ground coffee bean. Soft tannins give the wine a dry finish."

That’s a spicy meatball! If you’re a fan of bright oak influence, you’ll love this deeply spiced, juicy Cabernet. Cinnamon, clove, and black plum rule the roost and are ready for summer barbeque. A Platinum Award Winner at the 2018 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.

"Deep purple color. Mild, fruity aromas and flavors of dark berry pie, peanut brittle, brown butter, and dried lavender with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length cassis gelato, brown spices, cocoa, and cedar mulch finish with chewy, woody tannins and moderate oak. A very nice cabernet with chewy table-friendly tannins."

"Violet black color. Aromas of chocolate wafer bar, powdered berries and limes, and butter roasted nuts with a satiny, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a dried blueberry, roasted citrus, and cocoa accented finish with ultra fine tannins. A delightful sipper or table wine."

"Bright medium black ruby color. Bright, fruity aromas of berry pie a la mode, chocolate, and spiced nuts with an oily, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a tingling, complex, easy dried cherries, leather, and vanilla finish with silky tannins and moderate oak. A nicely balanced Napa cabernet."

"The upside of the recession is that wines this good are being sold for lower prices, which is great news for consumers. This Cabernet, basically a négociant's blend, is really delicious. It's rich, dry, tannic and lush in blackberry and cherry tart, chocolate and smoky cedar flavors."

"A good, everyday Cabernet. It's a bit gritty and hard in tannins, but very dry, with fine classic flavors of blackberries, black currants and oak. Give it a brief decant before drinking."
