Consistent. Great bright fruit. Good cab qualities. Well done for $25
Youthful deep color. Intense sweet cassis on the nose. On the palate the first thing you notice the purity. There is an amazing smooth sweet cassis, dark cherry, and deep tar going on here. I am a big fan of the lush elegant style this wine brings. The mouthfeel reminds me of a top Pomerol. Sure, it's fat, but what's wrong with fat? This has a finely weaved tannin level and an 'in your face' (not in a bad) way acid level. The finish is long and smooth. This is still wonderful, and there is no sign of any change on the horizon. A great deal at $39. Recenty found for $25 and a SCREAMING deal at that. Glad I got me more. Drinks like a $100 bottle of Napa Cab...really. Holdng at 94.
Ultra dark intense crimson color with the slightest purple edge. The nose shows some anise, currant, cherries, cassis, and espresso. On the palate there is a wonderful purity and lushness. A dark fruited medley with espresso and cocoa. This Cabernet has an amazing soft mouthfeel and a lilt balance of fine tannins and acid. To me this is more of a drinking wine than a food wine. This is a truly special Cabernet, especially when you take into account its cost; $40. A modern day Napa QPR. Over the past few months this wine has evolved nicely. It has picked up much more character, and has ironed out its rough edges. Drinks like today’s $100 Napas. Wow
Bright and youthful. Still intense cassis and vibrant red fruits. The acid is leveling out and my notes below pretty much still sum it up. The only difference is the reddish fruits now. Very very nice.
Medium garnet color. Great bright red fruits on the palate and nose. Sweet fragrant floral style of cabernet with cassis, red cherries, and red plums. Good mouthfell and purity. A slighly elevated acid level does not detract from this crowd pleaser. 92 points as a QPR.
