The Stuff: 100% reserve block Cab; 18 months in new and old French oak; 14.2% ABV
The Swirl: Dark plum with hints of aged rusty brown toward the edges
The Sniff: Mellow aromas of sweet blackberry and a whiff of vanilla and cocoa
The Sip: Mild front end with a wash of chocolate and berry; back end of bitter cassis and pepper spice. Slightly off balanced in flavor
The Score: At $12ish can score this a solid 3 and makes the re-buy list. Paired well with our hearty beef stew. (2983 views)
