I have really been shopping around for wines under 20 bucks. This is definitely one of the best so far. Very good color. Great Nose. Full bodied. Rich in fruit and great flavor. Bold. Beats many wines up to $30. The next wine I have in the next price range is BV Rutherford Cab $21. But for anything less than $21 I haven't tasted one better. GL trying to beat this one.

I have to have both aroma and taste to provide a high rating. This wine meets both my criteria and I think its a great drinking wine which is very smooth. My initial reaction to the tasting was really fruity with both blackberry and cherries. If you also like pinot noir’s I think you will like this wine because of its fruity notes. The taste is both crisp and refreshing.

I really can't add much to the above reviews... A definite bargain for the under $20 cab crowd. Luv it!

After letting the wine breathe for about 30 minutes after aeration, as the alcohol was over powering the fruit aromas, it was delightful in the cherry and blackberry flavors. Swirling it around my tongue also brought out the almond taste. The oakiness stayed on the middle of the tongue and finished off with a black liquorish taste, which I find a bit harsh. Compared to my regular monthly case wine buy of Rutherford Ranch Cabernet, I find it not as smooth, maybe a bit darker, not as luscious in it's fruit, however a decent buy when it was on sale for $9.99. Rutherford is at $14.99 and Murphy Goode is the same price when it is not on sale.

I was surprised by fruitiness of this wine. As others have mentioned, it is rife with cherries and blackberries, and my first reaction - after letting it breathe a bit - was that it drank a lot like a Pinot. While nothing spectacular, this would be a great everyday drinking wine.

I was definitely a fan of this one. It opened up for a bit before dinner and then continued through dinner. It was not as heavy as I was expecting but had a great fruit flavor without being too bomby. The finish was nice and paired wonderfully with probably the best steak I have had in two years.

Dark and bold, with explosive cherry and blackberry flavors that bring out the best in anything hearty, from burgers to Beef Wellington. Always a good idea

The second generation has clearly taken over at this landmark Alexander Valley winery, and it’s clearly reflected in the wines. They’re bigger, bolder, blacker and more – let’s say “assertively masculine” – across the board. Perhaps that’s what happens when three men turn their winery over to five sons: the young dudes have gotta outdo dad.Because I learned to appreciate Alexander Valley originally via Murphy-Goode wines, I keep tasting them and looking for ones I would drink. I have mostly passed on the Zins recently (so over the top you can’t see the top) so I never thought I would find some personal pleasures among the Cabernets – much less a baby-vine Cab.When I first nosed this wine, from four-year old vines, I didn’t know what to think: it smelled like mushrooms, scrambled eggs, and blackberry pancakes all at once. But after six hours, 24 hours, and 72 hours, it smelled exactly the same – the sign of a wine that’s true to something intrinsic, not tarted up. In your mouth, it’s full of sweet black fruit laced with baking spice delivered in a multi-layered texture that’s warm without alcoholic heat and that expands all the way through to the finish. Worth seeking out for both pleasure and originality.

Winemaker's Notes:

We sourced this wine from prime Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards throughout California, spots where warm, sunny days develop grapes to rich, balanced fruit expression with intriguing hints of thyme. A small percentage of Merlot adds depth and complexity to the deep blackberry and cherry character, and oak aging fully integrates the tannins.
