This is a lower alcohol wine (12.5% abv). It was tasted with other Cabs which is probably a disservice to it. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has black cherries along with a brine note. Medium bodied. On the palate, black cherries come thru. Medium tannins. Slight mint on the finish. It will benefit from some air at this point but should make nice drinking for the next decade. A nice match with chili or stews.
