Darcie Kent Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Madden Ranch 2010

Member Review by Stallion:

This was a pleasant surprise. had t his at a restaurant last night at my wife's Christmas party. Decent nose, and some fairly good structure. Some oak on the mid palate that jumps out at you. All and all a good economical Cabernet for the price.
