In my quest to find good ten dollar Cabernets, I came across this. Attracted by the big yellow label (I like Yellow on black-ish!), I decided to try it on a whim. Unlike my previous experience in this price range, the tannin was not overwhelming to the point of dominating the flavors. Instead there was a good baseline of flavors identifiable throughout. Regretfully I don't have the wine in front of me so can merely go off memory. As I recall there was a distinct red/black fruit flavor, but certainly nothing like prune. There was an identifiable tannin that was sort of pleasant, and the finish was almost smooth. I used the bottle over three days, and I found every day better than the last, until on the last day, it was actually a smooth drink with many of the flavors fully formed. I preserved it in the fridge on the second day, but left it out (and corked) on the first. I strongly recommend letting this one decant after opening, and even giving it a day or two to really develop as a nice wine. My guess is that in a few years, this would be a really pleasant drink.

5 stars. Not because it is the best wine I have ever had but it is one of the best Cabs for the 10$. Very mild tannins, not as dry as I like but very pleasant flavors. Excellent price for an excellent wine.
