Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Smoky blueberry, and dark plum aromas are prominent, followed by dried herbs and tobacco. The taste is jammy plum, blackberry, and raspberry, with a soft mouth-feel and rounded tannins. A great burger wine, but in the winter, definitely fireplace appropriate as well.
Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Intense smoke on the nose followed by spice. Full bodied. Dark fruits, plum. Beautiful long finish. This wine is an incredible value at this price. A great wine for BBQ foods

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A great value Cab! Lots of dark fruit on the nose and on the palate, subtle smokiness, chocolate, and blueberries. Perfect with spicy BBQ sausages.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Plum and blueberry dominate this Cabernet Sauvignon with some tobacco and herb on the palate. A good wine to pair with burgers or pasta.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Crowd pleasing juicy fruitiness dominates the nose hinting of some residual sugar in many popular American wines these days. It delivers on it's promise, with not too much residual stopping it from becoming jammy and overdone. Great value for the price. I'd love to see this paired with some spicy foods hot off the BBQ.
