Very fragrant. Good full body. Solid but I am disappointed in the finish a bit. Buy I am drinking this at a restaurant that serves by glass so could be a factor. This is very good but could be better w a few more years.

Would buy again. Pleasant surprise. Good balance of fruit very nice mid pallette only knock is it is a bit quiet for me on the finish. This is a sold wine. Would look to buy if could find just under twenty dollars again

Had this at cap grille. Very reasonably priced for menu restaurant pricing. This was a very good wine. Smokey but not too much. Smooth but heavy enough to swisher. Fruit froward. Very good

Surprising depth to this wine. We drank it a year later than we should have and I was worried it might have turned but surprising length and smokey ness. Much better than I would have expected. Especially at this price.

Not scoring this as we clearly missed its peak. Wine has not turned and still feels like it was fairly complex in its day but it is in its fading period at this point and just not one to suggest. Using it to cook instead

Average. Opens up better after a few hours and was actually better the 2nd day. But even then, this wine was not balanced. The heat on the back end was never balanced with the fruit up front. Very little bouquet and just at the end of the mid palette this wine starts to disappear only to have the back end acidity and alcohol hit you in the end. Much better wines out there for this price.

Nothing. That is what I have to write. This offered nothing. Really disappointing actually. Alcohol over powered any fruit. Virtually nothing on the nose and I kept waiting for it to offer more and it just never did. I am sure paired with some cheese you could do this and it is fine, not offensive but just not worth the $15 cab range, far better out there in that range. Pass.

A good wine at any price but at this proce this is outstanding. Good finish and well balanced. I would gave thought the alcohol was Lowe than 14. This is a good change of pace wine for those that have not ventured out of California reds. You could serve this to any guests and they would be hard pressed to know what you paid.

Conclusion: Enjoyable cab for the price but could be accused of having a bit too much make-up on tonight.
I liked this cab for when I consumed it, casually with family only on a lazy night. Not looking for anything special this had good full fruit, a bit of a bomb on the fruit actually which is why I say it could be accused of being slightly overdone. I didn't mind. But I wasn't paying $65+ for it or eating a gourmet dinner with it either. A hint of leather and smokiness balanced the fruit enough for me to enjoy this smooth finish on a pleasant cab. Buy for under $19 and be happy with what you bought.

Conclusion: A decent mid week pinot for the price.
Enjoyed this last minute on a sunday night with Pizza after a long day with the kids at soccer. This is a good pinot, not special but fruit is full and forward with an ok finish, not very long though. Good bouquet, good fruit, no complaint.s

This is a very good value for this blend. Good structure and balance. Fruit forward not a long finish but not too short I enjoyed this as an everyday quality wine

I must have missed something on this wine. The bouquet on this wine was not pleasant. Smelled of sardines, high salt didn't pick up any of the fruit on the nose that others have mentioned. The taste met the bouquet. very disappointing based on what others had said. Very thin pinot, flavor profile was very weak, no finish. My mistake may have been not decanting this wine which I see most did. I bought a few bottles so I will try again and see what I missed.

Complex. Wel structured. Full body. But the pepper component in this wine is just too strong for mutates. Would be better with food

Smooth without much of a finish. Not as bold as I like for a cab but a decent value and would appeal to a wide group at a dinner party

Deep color. Full flavor through mid palete and finish is strong. Great color but not too strong on bouquet which is good. Mostly a mid palette finish but in a good way. A little heavier than your avg Pinot. Almost bridging to a cab

Mild. Good mid palette but not a strong finish. Easy to drink. Light enough to pair with a variety of foods. But nothing spectacular about it
