A new label perhaps?  I tried to find out from the producer’s website about the details on this one, but it seems they are revamping the whole look of their web presence and are in the process of updating it.  Going forward, this was a pretty good wine.  Blended from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it has a fruity nose and nice mouthfeel.  Tannins in check, and a balance in the mid palate, I would say it is a textbook attempt at making an everyday crowd pleaser.  It just lacks something for me however, not sure what.  My guess is that this winery is pumping out loads of wine and has an established taste profile they are trying to achieve.  Boring to me and not one I would be giving as a gift, but probably a good party wine.  It is easy to drink and will pair with most meats, but forget about cellaring potential as it was not made for that.  A solid 85 pointer and 3 stars make this wine a decent buy for the cost that won’t embarrass you at a social gathering.
