This is textbook California Cabernet Sauvignon, with ripe black cherry and cassis flavors, and hints of chaparral, cedar, toast, brown-sugar spice and earthy minerality. The tannins are substantial yet smooth in this medium-full-bodied, herb-inflected wine.
Serve it with grilled rib eye steak with herb butter, braised beef short ribs, or black-pepper-crusted ahi tuna.
Nice value Cab. Fairly well balanced at this price point ($11). not big but good.
