    He said: Dark red color. Plum bouquet, dark chocolate taste and long dry finish. A very smooth velvety Cabernet that’s seeped with lingering flavors. In a word, it’s GREAT. Wonderful flavors, balanced and delicious. At the $13.60 price it’s an OUTSTANDING BARGAIN, at the normal $15.99 price it’s still a bargain.

    She said: Wonderful Chocolate bouquet followed by a flavorful dry taste with soft tannins and long tasty finish (with chocolate flavor). For $13.60 this is an outstanding Cabernet and a real bargain.

    Comments: 1Misty’s Restaurant in Lincoln, Nebraska serves great steaks flavored with their own rub. I used one of the free samples I picked up last Fall on the grilled Filet Mignon we had with this wine. The steak was perfect with this velvety Cabernet.
