This is a pretty, gentle and well balanced cabernet that does not have great depth or structure, but nor does it not...

Very enticing nose of red fruit cherry and cedar.strong tannins add grip but this wine will will be a mellow monster in a few years.
Reasonable alcohol level and very nice finish this wine will be great w veal or a book by the fire. Going to drink next 2016.

Medium+ ruby with a medium to medium+ intense nose.

Positives: What a nice surprise to have a Napa Valley Cab for under $20 that doesn’t taste like blueberry jam on toast. This wine features cedar, raspberry, plum, ribena, blueberry, mocha, cherry and a touch of leather. Medium+ body, tannins, acidity and length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Very similar to Errazuriz Max Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Chile ($18.5 & a best buy from my earlier review), but not as strong in the ribena and blueberry notes.

Tasted: 9 Jan 13

Best Buy

Drink now or over the next 3 years, on its own or pair it with tenderloin steak.

Score: 9/10, Value: 9+/10, Total: 18+/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
