There’s a weak sweet aroma on the cork with a hint of vinegar. Overall, it’s a pleasant start. For a red, the color is also on the weak side – a medium red transparent color with hints of pink. Maintaining the trend, a weak wine aroma comes from the glass once poured. The wine has a light to medium dryness in the mouth. There are no bad tastes or other bad characteristics. The wine holds up well in the refrigerator for days two and three. In fact it may improve slightly. Other reviewers average this wine at about 3.5 out of 5. It’s a little better than that in my mind.

Overall, this is a fairly nice wine, even if on the weaker side for a Cab. At $9.99, it’s a reasonable price for good quality if you’re looking for a California wine.
