    May 9, 2015 - consistent CM. Never overpowering - almost delicate Cabernet. If you are into that style, its very nice.

    April 6, 2015 - Wont be confused with the estate cab, but certainly quaffable. At half the price id be loading up. Average flavor and structure, reasonably complex with normal length. Since im all about QPR, i'll search elsewhere for my next cab.

    March 13, 2015 - Fruity nose. Interesting touch to the palate. Smooth but complex flavors (reminds me of a pinot noir). Cherry, chocolate and a bit of coconut. I like it. Decanted it for 45 min. Could not wait longer but that is just me. Nice aftertaste, silky. Long finish. Slow legs.
