Great wine. It had the Body amd fruits characteristic of a California Cab but more than 'BIG and Powerful' - nuanced complexity and elegance abound.

Really good. Bought a bottle in Lake Xomo and wish i shipped a case home. Great nose of red fruits, great balance, silky tannins and an enjoyable finish.

Decent wine for the money. Not tannic, but somewhat dominating alchohol; some cherries evident; quick finish. Again, a decemt every day bottle although i wouldnt likely buy another.

Nose of cherries and roses, thin to medium body wine with not much depth but very good spices and a lomg finish. An easy and enjoyable wine with or without food.

Love it. Silky tanins, great nose of blackberries, notes of dark cherries and black fruit and a nice, albeit brief, finish. Wonderful wine.

Beautiful bouquet of a nose : raspberries, blackberries and a mixture of florals. Dry on the palate with excellent balance and a long, elegant but still spicy finish.

I agree with Bob from the prior review. Solid with potential, but too much fruit and needs some more time.

So, do dry - but quite good. For $35, it's a winner in my book.

Very elegant, balanced, and refined. Dark fruits and increasing elements of spice as the wine aerates. Long subtle finish of pepper and spice.

Had on the beach in Bora Bora, so what's not to love. From memory, a somewhat lighter, medium bodied wine with spices, red fruits and great balance. Quite an elegant wine.

Kevin brought it. A pleasant surprise. Plums and red fruits throughout, but balanced and silky. Not great, but great for the money.

Very, very tight and a ton of tannins but great potential. Try in another five years.

Great buy. Nice blend of apples, pear and apricots with hints of tartness, slight spices, minerals yet a subtle sweetness. I like slighter crisper and acidic whites but this was a nice change of pace.

A bit tight at first but opened after a half hour. A nice, balanced, soft, medium bodied wine with slight hints of spice (less than expected). Solid.

Maybe we got a bad bottle. Fairly awful and I dumped the bottle.

Nose of dark fruits and subtle spices. The palate exhibits black currants and oriental spices on the front, and a surprisingly long dry finish of cedar and more spices on the back end. Drinks well despite its youth. Definitely going back for more. And if you live close to Norwalk, it's a Total steal at 35 at TW&M.

Nose of spices, black fruit and perhaps licorice. I found the wine quite tight and decanted for some time. On the nose, ripe juices cherries with some spices as well. Medium finish. Perhaps it's too juicy for me, but I was expecting more and didn't find it particularly interesting.

Distinctive and big nose of figs, black licorice, tobacco and tar precede more figs, cherries, and bitter spice on the palette. A lighter than expected, quite smooth, unique wine with a very nice smoky finish. The uniqueness of the wine isn't likely for everybody, but for $40 or less, you should def give it a try.

Medium nose of black fruits and licorice followed by an intense palette of spices, big black juicy fruits and tar. Full bodied, dry, gripping tannins and delicious. A winner.

Nose of barnyard and blackberries followed by a nice balance of plums, muted spices, subtle earth and soft tannins. Quite good and subtle.

Deep purple complexion; on the nose, cherries and cedar; palette of spices, blackberries, leather with firm tannins present. An enjoyable wine and nice for the money. Opened after 90 minutes of decanting.
