Ruby-red core to a cherry-red rim, this young Cabernet displays generous fruit in the nose. Some sweet black and red fruits, like blackberry, raspberry and fig, mingle with caramel and vanilla from the American oak. The entry is soft, mouth coating and filled with delicious red berry and sweet black plum. The wine itself is dry and palate filling, with a soft but well-structured, velvet finish. Tannins are modest but present in this youthful but approachable Cabernet Sauvignon.
Recommended when the restaurant was out of the 2005 BUONCRISTIANI OPC. Wow this winery has hit a home run. Purchased a case. Great value for <$25. Approachable, great nose, soft to the palette with a hint of fruit. Modest Tannins. Plan to drink this this year and reserve a couple of bottles for 2012/13. I like to say longer but I know me!
Amazing! First tasted this at a friend's wedding, and finally found it on wine.com a year later. I'm going to buy half a case and age it for a few years
Approachable, fruit forward nose. The palate is a little thin, but the tannin structure is promising for a little age. Will try again in 2-3 years.
