Rich, opulent and spicy - a true guilty pleasure. This clove and chocolate dominated palate has evidently...

Currants, cassis, cedar and mint aromas with some earthy & herbal aromas at the tail end. Currant and dark fruits lead to dark chocolate and coffee on the palate. Good acidity with well-integrated tannins, full-bodied. Quite smooth. Should finish on day opened. Tasted Aug/2012

While this is well-made, I can't say it's my style of wine. This wine is all dark plum, dark chocolate, coffee, and sweet baking spice. Medium bodied, soft, rounded tannins, and low acidity make this a definite crowd pleasing wine for late night saturday drinking with friends, but that's about it. Tasted March 2012.

Nice value Cab, that offers oaky, chocolate cherries, and sweetness (brown sugar?). Full bodied and well made, but has a touch of "cheep wine" taste to it.
The "Les Chevaux" is much better, in my opinion.

Didn't think much of it. Perhaps it's not my style.
