Deep garnet color. A rich bouquet of dark cherry, cocoa, clove, plum, tobacco and
toasted oak, with delicate notes of coffee and truffle. Layered and complex. Rich and full on the palate with a supple mouthfeel and opulent layers of plum, cherry, anise, and mocha. Smooth and concentrated, the
wine exhibits richly woven texture with dark, dense fruit on the long finish.
Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Syrah, 1% Malbec
Excellent for the price!

When you can get this on sale for $17-$19 a bottle, it's a great deal. Typical Napa cab, not outstanding but a good everday drinkable wine. Consistent between vintages.
consistent and solid for price range
Same tune, nice oakey cab for $17 a bottle, but not worth the now price of $29
didn't have an opportunity to enjoy this wine, because it was damaged in shipping...this was the 4th time my order from wine.com has been damaged. this was a good deal on an everyday red, however, it ended up being a NO DEAL due to being damaged...happening to often,to be an effective source to purchase quality vino!!!

Not much bouquet. Initial harshness overwhelms nice cab flavors. Improves somewhat with air exposure in glass. Disappointing for label and vintage. Not worth the price.

I am going to wait another year for this one. The bottle we drank took a long time to open up somewhat, but did not fully do so. Even 2nd day...a little thin and maybe acidic early, it got better, but...I know it's a 2009 so we're going to give this case some time to develop.
