Medium and round in the mouth, this Cab-Merlot is reminiscent of Carmenère, with its red-fruit core and loads of barbecue-like spices. There's plenty of clove on the nose, too; what it lacks is subtlety it makes up for with quaffability.

Quiet at first, the aromas expand with air to encompass cherry and mint. It's a smoother, more elegant style that expected given the wine's price point and origin, finishing gently with chalk and toast.

Soft and gentle, with more strawberry than currant, finishing with a touch of fine-grained tannin. Drink now through 2004.

A harmonious marriage of Cabernet, which contributes rich cassis and mint flavors, and Merlot, which provides attractive berry characters with a hint of chocolate.

Broad in texture, with tangy acidity against ripe plum and dried tomato flavors, finishing with a touch of rosemary. Drink now through 2008.


Winemaker's Notes:

Most all of your friends will get on board this berries-and-caramel train, and at this price, you can afford to treat them. Has ripe fruity aromas and flavors, with a maple-caramel tinge that's a little sweet for this reviewer, but will find plenty of fans.
