This review is for the 2007 vintage. I got off work tonight and decided to grab something off the wine rack that was around $10-$15 and an average drinker. This cab has a glassy dark burgundy color. On the nose this wine has blackberry, blueberry, oak, liquorish, plum. taste of plum, blackberry, oak, coffee, cigar, tobacco. Light start and full finish. Lots of tannins and very little acidity. I would give this wine a 87. For the price you can find better, but I enjoyed this wine.
