    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet color. A luscious cascade of dark fruit, including black currant, black cherry, plum, and blackberry complemented by sweet vanilla and baking spices. Flavor is rich, round, and full-bodied; layered with blackberry, cherry, dried plums, and a hint of cocoa; generous weight on the palate and smooth, mouth-filling tannins; the finish lingers with flavors of rich cassis and black cherry.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A solid Cabernet, dry and full bodied, showing classic flavors of blackberries, currants and oak, with hints of vanilla and toast. Feels rich in the mouth, a wine to enjoy through a long finish. Great price, and it could even develop in the bottle over the next few years.

    A terrific Cabernet at a great price. Fruit, acidity, all in balance. Drink now. Don't run out.

    This is a very decent Napa cab and a good value at the sale price of $18.

    Listed as Smooth & Supple 4. A bit more acidity than I prefer but overall enjoyed this bottle.
