Deep red with dark berry fruit aromas and oaky notes. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry with cherry flavors, oak, pepper and some hints of smoky vanilla spice. Nice mouthfeel, good balance, fine tannins, medium finish ending with soft oak.

First tasting of the ‘19 cab. Very consistent with previous vintages. Opens up quickly to layers of cassis. Fruit forward, but not overly so. Mellow tannins. Very good, and great value. Rating affirmed Halloween ‘21.

Dark garnet to the edge, typical Cabernet nose. At first fairly smooth in the mouth but then turned fairly tannic with matching acidity. Not great- mainly black plum with a hint of black cherry.

For $20, this is solid. Needs a little time to open up, but well worth the price.
