    So that's what that is! The diesel or lighter fluid taste. And here I thought it was just me. The nose is pleasurable, but yes, I had to pause at that odd flavor. But you know what? I do like this wine since it pairs so well with food. I'm just too used to the CSM Rieslings ... this is different and good too!

    A surprise to me. I don't normally drink rose and I was expecting it to be a light-bodied sweeter summer sipper. It's a summer sipper, but I would say it's medium-bodied and not sweet. I can see why the other reviewer said red drinkers would enjoy this. I think the Cab makes this a fuller bodied wine which will pair well with pretty much anything because it's on the drier side. I will buy this again for sure.

    Style: Big & Bold
    I'm really really glad I had this bottle for my birthday. First off, it's organic ... a HUGE plus because the flavors are so amazing and especially since you know no pesticides touched the grapes. Next, the tannins are incredibly smooth, it's almost Merlot-like, but definitely a Cab. It was such a pleasure to enjoy a fine Cabernet and supporting the winery who cares about their soils, products and employees (so they don't get sick).
