    Winemaker's Notes:

    Juicy, fresh and easy drinking! The wine is full of rich aromas and flavors of plums, blackberries and dark cherries. It's jammy and indulgent with a stroke of oak bestowing a poised spice. A luscious wine with vivid personality!

    Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Zinfandel

    Critical Acclaim:

    This animated red (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Zinfandel) draws on sweet, meaty cherries, succulent plums, black olives and spiced black fruit. With two sides to its personality—deep and brooding on one side and generous and outgoing on the other—it is a study in [vibrant] flavor and a tableau of [velvet] texture.

    A most welcome surprise. It's rare to find a wine that tells you something genuinely new, and even rarer when the novelty is positive. The bouquet is slightly floral with strong spice notes---cinnamon and clover---which fully develop on the palate. The zinfandel component perfectly complements the cab, and gives the wine a moodier note with intense-yet-pleasurable sweetness. Excellent body, with soft tannins and a long finish. The perfect wine for this time of the year (Fall), and a superb value.

    Hands down....simply the best tasting wine you'll find for under $15. There is nothing even close! Yes, it is on the sweet side though.

    Out of the bottle it is very soft in the mouth. Perhaps it could be perceived as sweet but rather, I think, it has more to do with the very soft feel and lack of tannins found in most Cab blends.The nose is also both herbal and a bit soft. Anyway, I will let this wine breathe for a while and vacuum and then try again tomorrow. I think though, that this wine will not disappoint. Ok, after the third pour on the third day under vacuum,this wine has opened up beautifully! The nose has evolved into an earthy delight and the fruit is rich and worth the wait. I have changed to 4 stars from 3. I will buy again!

    Very sweet for a non-advertised as sweet red wine. Decent flavor but I did not like it as it was quite sweet.
