Fine, complex start, full mellow feel with rich bright fruit finish. Good balance between tannins and acids. Good length, pleasant finish

“Danger Will Robinson!” So smooth & delicious that’s it’s easy to drink 2 bottles

Description: Medium+ ruby with a hint of garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This complex wine for under $20 wine features cedar, violets, black and red currants, cherry, blueberry, plum, cassis, turmeric, mocha, light graphite and leather. Medium+ body with smooth tannins, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Always a solid wine for under $20, but this is the best vintage that I have tried to date.

Drink now or in the next 5 year on its own or pair it with oxtail stew.

Tasted: 3 Aug 2014

It's only wine but I like it

Nice cabernet here. Good ripeness, with blackberry and cassis along with notable but integrated mocha from the oak. A bit heavy on the oak for my personal tastes but well-balanced enough. Very good value on sale at 14.95.
