90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012
Bright ruby-red. Cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and spices on the nose. Juicy, spicy and nicely delineated, with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of plum and currant. Finishes with a firm tannic spine that should support some aging, but this would be good with fatty meats right now. Classy cabernet for the price range.

Smooth and fruity
We enjoyed the richness of this wine. Shared it with our neighbors and they all gave this the thumbs up.
The rich berry taste and easy finish were to our liking in this Cabernet
Very smooth wine; good for drinking any evening when you don't want something too heavy or dry, but yet full of flavors.
Only tried one glass with a pasta dish but the wine was very nice . It stood up well to a spicy tomato based sauce. A well chilled bottle was very important.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
