The 2012 vintage shows the benefit of long hang time on the vine with deep purple color and wonderful fruity aromatics. This Cab blend starts off with aromas of blackberry cobbler, cassis, sandalwood, and herbs du provence. The flavors burst from the glass with notes of dark cherry, sweet leather, black currants, and toasted cardamom finishing with a hint of spearmint, dried fig, and toasty vanilla notes from a combo of French and American oak.
Great wine at affordable price ! Actually bought a case but it went too fast - nothing fancy but very drinkable !
Subtle berry taste, subtle tannins. Very mild oak influence. Very easy drinking. 2013 is nearly as good as 2012.
A Delicious merlot for the price. Sweet and robust.
Tart fruity (lemon&currants) not too sweet
Full-bodied and finishes dry
Some sour, dry, acidic
Robust, even flavored
