Cheap for a reason
Fruity, not much structure. Good pizza wine or for a hearty stew.
Great for an everyday dinner wine.
Delicious deep berry flavor that lingers, a touch of oak, chocolate and great aroma
I'm a big fan of Columbia Crest & Chateau Ste. Michelle. Their wines are always spot-on for the variety or the blend in the bottle. This is juicy and darkly-fruited with blackberry & black currant at center stage. Evergreen notes dance in the background. A satisfying wine that offers super value.
Great for the price. Intense with tart berry notes and a hint of toasted vanilla flavor.
It is interesting to compare this 2010 Two Vines Cab to their previous efforts. This one lacks intensity of the 2008 and 2009. Plus, it is shorter on fruit. A simple wine. Some cherry in the nose and some cacao --- 84 rating..
