Deep ruby. Aromas of ripe black currant, dark cherry, and lilac interlace with black pepper, bay leaves, coffee, and toasted oak to create a rich, dense nose. Powerful, rich, and textured notes of dark cherry, ripe plum, caramel, and vanilla flavors weave an intense, voluminous mouthfeel accented by hints of anise and mocha. The back palate is rounded out by a lengthy yet smooth finish of vibrant sweet oak, tobacco leaves, and black olives.
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec
"Scents of black currant and rhubarb lend a bit of sweet relief to this lean, narrowly focused mountain wine. Overall, it's more savory than sweet, with firm black tannins that carry notes of peppercorns and beef stock. "

"Deep, dark and smooth with ripe, juicy plum, blackberry and cassis; rich, toasty and showing tar and spice. 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec."
Loved this wine as did everyone I shared it with! Nice and bold but smooth, dry but not too dry with some fruit and a nice finish! Excellent.
Horrible! Bitter, without any fruit forward taste but plenty of bad after-taste. Biggest let down of this holiday season. Know why it was marked down. Have 5 bottle remaining, would like to send back.

Delicious and smooth with a lot of complexity. I had a couple cases without one bad bottle. Earlier commenter may have had a bad bottle. It happens. Great value at $30
