Wine Description

Blackish plum in color. A medium-to-full bodied wine. Aromas of ripe blackcurrant and plummy fruit with a hint of mint. Toasty oak aromas and sweet fruit flavors are balanced by soft ripe tannins. Good structure with a nice, lengthy finish.

    86 points Wine Spectator: "[$10 list] Solid, with a direct beam of cassis, fleshy plum, toasty vanilla and black licorice notes and a polished, easy finish. Drink now. (8/31/14)" Producer notes: "90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot. This delicious, crowd pleasing Cabernet -- consistently named a Wine Enthusiast 'Best Buy' -- delivers serious bang for the buck! It's packed with lip smacking flavors of blackcurrant, black cherry and plum, with subtle hints of dark chocolate and spice. Alcohol 14.5%." "This delicious, crowd pleasing Cabernet value is a no-brainer, delivering serious bang for the buck! With its ripe yet gripping tannins providing good structure to the ripe palate that’s really quite tasty. A heck of a value and at this price, it's a steal.

    Very sweet. This was recommended to cook with and I can see why. Decent cheap summer sipper; looking forward to cooking with it.

    Oaky, with dark ripe fruit. A little better than the $7.99 price point but not a lot.

    Rich deep plum flavor. Warm in the throat finish. Great value wine.

    Delicious notes. Slightly jammy and definitely plummy.
