Big dried fruit and roasted herb aromas greet the nose followed by truffly and mushroomy accents to the over-ripe fruit all layered over spicy oak. Surprisingly light one entry, this is rich with black and red fruits that show a less pronounced sense of over-ripeness than is found on the nose, though a bit of aromatic pruniness marks the palate. The wine is surprisingly medium bodied with ripe, slightly chewy tannins supporting gently medicinal cherry fruit and a nice caramel and vanilla edge on the backend leading to a moderately long, dark macerated cherry fruit, tamarind tinged, and wood spiced finish. Not my style of wine but one that is well done for its type and will have broad appeal for it. 88pts

List It
  • 150558moldavi33 I'd like to add Educated Guess to this list. Phenomenal Cab for $20-$25, drinks more like a $40 bottle. Napa fruit, but not overly extracted, and pretty well structured, to boot. Gimmick-y label, but don't let that dissuade you; it's very, very good.

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Good call Moldavi. A very attractive wine!

  • 12988261206gene I still think the H3 ( Horse Heaven Hills ) cab from Columbia Crest is one of the best bargain cabs around, with plenty of cab character for $11.69 to $15, depending upon where you buy it.

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Absolutely gene. I serve it blind on occasion and it has no problem keeping up with $20-$25 Cabs. Thanks for the suggestion.

  • 1145575wolfarthe Anything from Waterbrook! Great producer at affordable prices. Merlot is even better than their cabs.
