This wine shows a very focused blackcurrant nose with subtle oak spice to complement. The palate is full bodied well...

LCBO on sale sometimes $18, best wine in the cellar, very full bodied and sweet?

Our staple red. Love the full-bodied nature, and the romance of having been to Paso Robles for a wine tour...a sentimental fave that is well worth the price time and time again.

Bold, full bodied, fruity, ripe. Delicious! My go to wine. Great value in its price range.

A somewhat full-bodied red.

The nose is of fresh fruit and berries. Nice legs. Decanting does not really mature the tannins a whole lot.

The tongue is of jam, ripe blackberries, cherries, and vanilla. There is moderate sweetness; however, the tannins nicely balance and complement red meats.

The finish is not all that long or complex, but does impart a nice end to a decent cabernet sauvignon.

Both bright and lustrous, aromas of black fruits fill the nose. Essences of vanilla and other deep toasty notes linger before the sipping. The mouth-filling body is silky smooth with the same flavors carrying through to a slightly oily finish of tar and violets.
Yes, the feeling in the mouth is nice to start, but there just seems to be something over-worked and stressed. The softness of the tannin feels clammy on the tongue. This leads to a flabby and fatty smooth feeling like a big lick of margarine just coated the palate with oil.
