Very fruity! Strange fragrance. Didn't really enjoy it. Debated whether or not to finish. Expected more of a full body traditional cab.

Drink it in december 2018, it was really good, but 1 or 2 years older would have been perfect.

Yeah, it's fairly cheap wine from Publix. But it's Independence Day, it's named Federalist, and it has freakin' Benjamin Franklin on the label. It's really not bad; fairly fruity with decent darkness, and some kinda floral action going on. Almost like violets or lavender or something. Dang, I need a better-trained palate. But regardless; 'Merica! F-yeah! Happy Independence Day, my fellow winos!🍷🗽

Nice dark garnet color. Aromas of black cherries, cassis and baking spices. Good flavor, lots of red and black fruit with an oaky finish.
