My friend liked this wine, it goes down easy, it is kind of delicious, but to me it doesn't have enough flavor, I tried to find some nice fruity overtones but couldn't find much past the oak. 2 stars seems a little harsh that is why it gets 3.
I really liked this wine. I usually go for varietals because I have not had the greatest experience with blends. This was really nice and having paid around $15, I think I'm gonna get this one again. There was a real good balance to this wine, I expect that from a blend, but it also had a decent amount of character to it.
at first this was a little too fruit forward for me, I was not going to buy it again. Took 3 days to get through the bottle, but each day it seemed to get better, the fruit more in the background but more and more delicious. This might not be my type of wine, undecided if I will buy again, but I would not hesitate to recommend this one bit.
I didn't find too much flavor or much remarkable about it, plummy grapeness.
This wine is really pleasant to drink, pretty rich and oaky, not too sweet, it is really nice, super great on a cold day when you want a wine to warm up with. In the end though it is not that interesting regarding any fruity flavors, it does the job nicely with oakiness, this wine has its purpose, and though I might not buy again, it was a fun one to try.
I tried the '05 first, really liked it so I thought I would try the '04, being a bit older, the same price, (and the '05 was out of stock at the time). Got two bottles here, and not sorry I did, this is a nice wine, but, for a dollar more, the 05 is the one to get, it is richer tasting, more oak and more berry flavors, I recommend if you are gonna get one that is the one to buy at a similar price. The 2004 is nice, same flavors, but the 05 is richer, softer, more luscious, a bit more alcohol taste too, but much more of a wowing kind of cabernet.
