Paid less than $20 for this and was blown away. Rich jammy nose and taste, some fennel on the nose. Great oak lends complexity. A solid CA cab. Even at 27 or so (average price i see here) its a fair wine.

Fruits and roots open on the nose, with black cherry, sassafras, licorice, vanilla and tobacco emerging in the first hour, along with a hint of dusty oak and rubber floor mat. The palate delivers classic cab flavors, including cherry, licorice, tobacco and mocha. The cherry pops are bright and savory, threaded through varied combinations of other tastes with some evolution over three hours. Tannins are soft and weak, and thus the fruit is not concentrated or sustained. Pleasant, easy drinking.

I loved it! For a Cab Sav, tannins are soft but still has the jammy lively taste. Had post Boston Marathon 2008!

Had plenty of berry aromas and taste. A rich color and mouth feel. Each sip went down smoothly with plenty of taste to compliment.

Connoisseurs' Guide To California Wine ReviewLots of sweet, blackcherry fruit is what drives this very rich and flavorful effort with nicely measured oak spice and a faint whiff of herbs lending a note of quiet complexity. There is more than enough fruit, in fact, to lift the wine past its somewhat abrasive young tannins, and lend real optimism that its best is yet to come. Set it aside for at least five years of age, and do not be surprised if it winds up improving for ten or more.Wine Tasting NotesThis robust wine is dark ruby in color, with strong aromas of ripe black cherry, spicy toasty oak, plums, cinnamon and tobacco. The rich, silky palate reveals lush black currant and blackberry flavors, strong, supply tannins and a long, fruity finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry-like fruit aromas with cedar overtones highlight the dense, ripe fruit flavors and elegant finish of this wine. Aged in small oak barrels, this Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with small amounts of Bordeaux-style varietals that help to accentuate its complexity. This wine compliments most cheeses and strongly flavored foods such as roast lamb and chicken.
