A tremendous value. Hard to believe it’s so good, considering the price. The details of its origins and winemaker are mysterious, but it’s worth a special search. Rich and dry, it’s packed with classic blackberry, black currant, blueberry and cedar flavors, wrapped into firm, smooth tannins. Drink now–2016.
This is one of the best buys on the market now for a Cabernet of this quality at this price. It’s a wonderful wine, well structured and dry, with lush flavors of blackberries, currants, herbs and cedar that are wrapped into firm, ripe tannins. Should develop additional complexity through 2014.
A bit on the soft, overripe side, with currant, licorice, cherry, cocoa and oak flavors. But it’s dry, and the tannins are fancy. Drink it fresh out of the bottle with a grilled steak.
