Bright and focused, showing a sandy accent to the spicy cassis and thyme flavors, with a polished texture on the harmonious finish. Offers complexity and depth. Best from 2014 through 2019.

This is he one for those of you who are short of cash. This is an inense fruity wine smooth on the palate. It's taste is intense to say the least, smooth, fruity of dark fruits, chocolate, tobacco oak and a smokey finish that lasts on the upper mid palate. If you need a side car wine to go with your prominent selection, throw it in the cart and consider it a bonus bottle for under $ 9.00. I will rate this good and also purchase a couple of bottles for future meals.

My Rating 91: perfect berry nose with slight strong Oak flavors. Body very well balanced in the front. at the end it fades away elegant but displaying a medium body. Got this at Costco for $12.99.

After 2 hour decant: slightly more than medium body, smooth, jammy blackberry, strawberry, hint of chocolate and cigar box, subdued but well balanced acid and tannins. Very nice for the price!

Nice fruit forward and for the under 10 crowd this works for that everyday wine or just to have for the super bowl :-). OK since this was more on the medium side and and big and bold it's NOT, it actually went well with the all the snacks . So gave it a 3 cause of the price and how it went well with the snacks. Any higher in the price and I would not get it or rate it as high

An outstanding Reserve, this opens with potent aromas of spice and cacao, which lead onto a muscular, sleek and stylish palate that shows terrific depth of black fruits. The wine has exceptional structure, and it remains nuanced, with details of earth and stem.

Meticulously hand crafted in our Petit Chai a special place we like to call our winery-within-a-winery our Reserve wines represent the finest 1% of our total production.

Bigger, chewier than the Two Vines, this shows more concentrated cassis and very firm tannins; there are some early hints of herb and olive. Overall there is simply power and punch.

With plenty of consumer-friendly vanilla/tobacco flavors, this value Cabernet also brings in dark fruits mdash; blackberry and cassis. The tannins have been smoothed out a bit, though they still carry a little bit of stemmy edge. A good everyday choice for that burger.

The purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Estates (225,000 cases) spent 16 months in 33% new oak. Cedar, tobacco, incense, violets, spice box, black currant, and blackberry aromas inform the nose of a layered, spicy, easy-to-understand Cabernet that is nicely balanced and moderately lengthy. It is a very good value that will provide enjoyment for another 4ndash;5 years.

Rich mocha and brown sugar accent this winersquo;s black cherry flavors. For barbecue.
