On the nose, this wine has nice warm spices. The mouth reveals blackberry, dark cherry and plum. The finish is mild and long. One of the best wines Texas has to offer.
I keep warming this trying to get a bit more out of the nose, but I just can't get it. I can't really say if it is the wine or me. It is not the experience I normally expect from a Cab, but then I normally avoid them as most Cabs in my price range are terrible. I have dumped way too many. This one, however, is very enjoyable. I would probably give it 3/5 on taste alone, but for a Cab under $10, I think that needs a bit of a bump upward. It is something I will buy again and share with friends. Vintage: 2010
This is a great bottle of Central Texas Red for every day drinking. Not threatening, yet satisfying to even the most discerning of palates. Characteristics of intense cherries, ginger spice, and just enough oak to round it out are complemented by a silky tannic structure followed be a soft to medium finish.
Great for a Texas Cab!
Iconoclast at less than $9 a bottle is a hell of a deal. Great bouquet, nice cherry, oak, spice notes, and lingering aftertaste.
