Although it’s in a box, it’s a serious wine. The quality of the juice is respectable and the wine is barrel aged, which is a administer usually reserved for more expensive wines. Despite the varietal on the mark, it’s not all cabernet sauvignon grapes in this wine. It has 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petite Sirah, 4% Carignan, 4% Tempranillo, 4% Petit
The luscious dark fruit aromas that you expect from a cabernet sauvignon are certainly found in this wine, along with a dusty herbal characteristic that distinguishes it. The palate is all about the fruit, with plenty of black cherry and black currant flavors. There’s a bit of oak flavor on the palate too. The tannins aren’t bitter, but deliver a pronounced dryness in the mouth. Overall, it’s a decent cabernet — although I wouldn’t call it elegant.
