I have previously drunk two or three bottles of this stuff without taking notes.  I figure it’s time as this is the last bottle I have.  It has a medium purple complexion and is mostly see-through.  On the nose I get black berries, Ribena and tar.  On the palate it is very straightforward Cabernet.  Dark fruits, good tannic backbone and some juicy acidity.  There is a plum tart component that hits me on the mid palate which is quite nice.  The tannins really grip on the back end and give me that dry gum sensation.  A decent drop for quaffing that is rather limited in dimension yet is approachable and drinkable right away with some cellaring potential.  Pair with burgers, steaks and pasta.  Not bad for $15.  88 points makes it a solid 3 star wine.  Salut….
