Opaqueish garnet hue with some depth and aromas of spiced cocoa, a hint of cedar, and sweet blueberries.

Palate–Ripe berry fruit, with nuances of chocolate reminding me more of a Washington State Cab, with surprisingly rich front palate with loads of savory spice and a finish that actually has some last to it.

My wife bought this for me at an out of state liquor store I shop frequently and runs various sales, this one being a 15% case discount on any mix N match American wines.  She threw this random cheap Cab in to make a case lot on an otherwise Zinfandel-heavy assortment.  I am pleasantly surprised.  It is tasty, made in the popular, easy to drink style, and at the sale price of $11 it is an easy enough quaff perfect with grilled burgers, or brats as I will have this evening so raise a glass!
