This smells like sawdust, vanilla extract, licorice and roasted fruit. Rich though soft in the mouth at first, this certainly packs in body and dry extract, though it comes off as blocky and dense. The fruit is a bit on the pruny side and just seems really saturated. The finish is dry and tough, with matte saturation of flavor on the tongue. More a textural event than a tasting event, this reminds me of Play-doh. 85pts

    You can find the Liberty School at World Market in California for $10-12, which makes it a great gift for friends who like wine and aren't snooty--also can take it to a dinner when you aren't sure if the wine you bring will be opened. Or, if you don't fear palate burnout, you can treat it like a daily drinker and have really solid Cab any night you like. Really a good bargain, IMO--why buy Chilean when you can have this?
