There's a slight resinous quality to this red, accenting the juicy cherry, mint and herb flavors. Moderate concentration and structure. Drink now.

Cola and black cherry flavors are juicy and sweet in this ripe, clean red. Accents of herb and smoke add interest. has just enough structure for food. Drink now.

Spicy and woody, with a pungency on the nose. The round palate is full of red-berry fruit and a fair amount of supporting oak. That wood is confirmed on the finish, where things turn a bit buttery and rich. Fortunately some lively tannins and cleansing acids keep things from getting bogged down. A good everyday Cab.

Deep ruby in color, this Cab is ripe with fruit and spices, supported nicely by cedar shadings and firm tannins that give it plenty of backbone.

A rich wine with good varietal character, this Chilean Cabernet is concentrated, well balanced and seamlessly presented, integrating smoky oak notes, ripe, sweet blackberry flavors and ripe tannins. A fine match for hearty foods. A real value for all it offers.

From Chile, this affordable red shows dark plum and cassis aromas and flavors, with a touch of smoky bacon fat adding interest. It's chewy and muscular, with a briery note throughout. Drink now through 2001.

Winemaker's Notes:

89 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): Dense, sweet, layered, lots of flavor, over-delivers. (Oct 2010) Intense ruby-red color. The nose is packed with layers of caramel, cinnamon, candy and hints of mint, with a prevalence of fruit over oak. A spicy, full-flavored wine, with good body, fruit and firm tannins. An engaging and strong finish.
