Alas the evening was winding down, the good stuff was empty and this little Cabernet appears. At first glimpse I was reticent. After the first taste, not too shabby. I have had this wine before, it is not on my list of re-buys. However, it showed pretty well with some primal red fruits, a dose of oak and a trace of tannic backbone. I was stunned, this wine was actually pretty good. I am not sure if it was the level of ‘palate fatigue’ that I was being influenced by, but as an evening closer, it did the job. I would say 84 points and for the low price of around $7-8 a 3 star wine that you need to have in reserve should the need arise!
