Pretty medium ruby in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
Positives: There's a lot going on for a Cab that's priced at under $10. Cedar, lots of peppers (red, black & white), black currants, cinnamon spiced apples, nutmeg, blueberry pie, plums & oregano. Medium body with medium tannins, acidity & length.
Interesting Item: New Eco-friendly lightweight bottle. This is a great bottle to have as a second bottle to open during the day, evening, or to bring a couple (heck for $9.95 you can bring several bottles) over to a friends place for BBQ.
Drink now on its own or pair it with anything on the BBQ. I would even try it with fish on the BBQ due to its lower tannin level.
Tasted: 12 Sept 12
Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 10/10, Total: 18.5+/20.
Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4

Blackberry, spices, chocolate, and coffee on the nose. Plenty of ripe fruit, but slightly harsh tannins. Medium-bodied and lacking in complexity, but good value at the price.
A vibrant red wine, aromas of strawberry jam, with vegetal and spice notes that reminded me of tomato sauce (odd I know!). This medium-bodied red, has good tannins with flavours of blackcurrant and vanilla hints. Finishes quick and clean. Tasted February 2012
