The wine is a deep ruby color, with an almost inky center, ideal for a nice Cabernet. The nose expresses some lovely notes of blackberry and leather with a good bit of earthy mineral notes. The taste is a rush of black fruit at the outset that transitions to some earthy mineral notes of basalt and dusty limestone midpalate. The finish presents a reprise of blackberry as the young, yet tame tannins provide the backdrop for the long, smooth and very dry finish.

Overall, I would rate this wine a solid 8.5, it's a very nice Cabernet and it was a good value on sale for around $20. Tonight I am relaxing after working hard all day, enjoying this wine with a classic pairing of a rare grilled steak, steamed white asparagus and a big baked potato. Cheers!
