Intense, dark ruby color with enticing aromas of ripe, black plums and black currants. The richly textured plum and currant flavors are joined by accents of dark chocolate and some vanilla-scented oak. The ripe, vibrant tannins give the wine beautiful structure and an amazingly long finish. This is a big wine for just a little money. Drink it now or over the next few years to enjoy the fruit flavors at their best.
It will pair well with traditional Cabernet-friendly foods like grilled or roasted meats.
"Good dark red. Cassis, spices, licorice and wild herbs on the nose. Juicy, spicy and classically dry, with a penetrating quality to its strawberry and plum flavors; more red fruits than black in the mouth. At once vinous and pliant, finishing with firm but suave tannins, good bite and noteworthy persistence and lift. This has enough structure to last nicely in bottle but also offers plenty of early appeal. Excellent value."
