Nose is almost intense and like a Super-Tuscan. Distinct cherry fruit and dusty leathery aromas with hints of floral perfume. Lively acid on the attack with rich ripe layered cherry and cassis, some smokey notes with bit of mineral stone and fuzzy tannin. Finish fades slowly of same. Delicious. Not a fruit bomb. Dryish. Body medium plus, acid medium, tannin medium.

This is a very dark wine with aromas of dark fruit - blackberries, dried cherries, and slight touches of vanilla with some hints of cassis and tanned leather. The tannins are light and acidity relatively low, which results in a medium bodied, well balanced, and very silky feel. Pair this food-friendly Cab veal or other simply-prepared meats.

One of my Fav under $20 bottles. Yet to find something that comes close.

We didn't like it when we first tried it. It was too dry, not fruity enough, kind of simple. We went away for a long weekend and five days later, found that we had left some in an open bottle in the fridge. Surprise! Five days later it was better!? Tasted more fruity, some distinct pepper. Maybe it just tasted better because it was cold. In any case not a great Cab, bit not bad. I'll give it a three. At ten dollars it would be a great Cab. At fifteen, about as good as you'll find for a $15 Cab. Would not pay more than that. Rated a three.

I liked this cab, especially for it's price-$16. I'd give it a B+.

This tasty, fruity, earthy 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals notes of wood smoke, black cherries, black currants, and hints of herbs as well as oak. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.

A subdued, rich and chewy youngster, full-bodied, offering currant, blackberry, cedar, anise and graphite, ending with chewy tannins. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Here's a solid Cabernet with extra features of complexity and interest. It's bone dry, with softly gentle tannins and rich, forward flavors of cherries, currants, herbs and cedar. Very pretty and polished, at a fair price.

The tight tannins are wrapped around supple plum and cherry-laced fruit, making this easy to enjoy now, with modest complexity. Drink now through 2010.

Tight and focused, with a firm band of dried currant, spice, cedary oak and floral notes that are complex and persistent. Drink now through 2012.
