Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Much lighter in ruby colour than expected from a young Cabernet Sauvignon. This "lightness" travelled on through to the nose and palate. Fairly low in aroma, noting: red currants, strawberries, cherries, dirt, butterscotch and an herbal characteristic which seemed like a combination of dill, cilantro and bay leaf. A dry wine, with medium+acid, low+body, medium-tannins, medium+alcohol, and [again] not a lot coming through on flavours: cherries, red currants, cranberries, green pepper, smoke and wet earth; ending short and bitter. This is definitly not a typical Cabernet Sauvignon but worth the try. This wine does not need any additional aging nor would it benefit from doing so; drink now. A regional food pairing would work well here: Mexican beef/pork dishes with lots of ingredients and flavours (e.g. Mole, tacos, enchiladas). Fried foods, beef jerky and cured game could also work.
