rich nose of cherries and black currant....elegant attack....pretty light on the palatte for a cab, but has a big lingering finish.

Fruit on the nose that doesn't come through in the taste. Good for everyday. A good cab!

People seriously enjoy this? I just opened a bottle and pulled away after wafting the bouquet. After half a glass, I can seriously compare this bottle of the 2010 vintage to feces mixed with other extraneous excrement plus a grape. Horrible wine. Horrible. Yea, $10 bottle, but there's many a bottle I've experienced under $5 which are much less repulsive.

Perfectly ripe grapes yielded a beautifully colored and complex Cabernet that is rich ruby in color with dark cherry, black current, toffee and mocha notes. Silky tannins and good structure lead to a long and complex finish accented with vanilla notes.
