Tasting:

    He said: Very slightly opaque dark red color. Ripe cherry aromas. Nice fruit taste and a medium-long flavorful finish. Delicious soft tannin Cabernet. Very good with the blue cheese pasta. Not memorable and complex; but soft and easy drinking without the depth of “really” good (and expensive) Cabernet. At $12.60 this is an OUTSTANDING buy for a Cabernet Sauvignon!!!

    She said: This is not your usual Cab. First off, it is 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. It is medium bodied and has dark berry flavor and soft tannins. It went well with our dinner but was even better drinking alone. At under $15 it was a quality wine at a bargain price.
