The label is great. It reminds me of this magical chocolate gold coins I used to eat as a kid. This wine is LUSH. And if you are hopelessly in love with it, as I fear I am, it could also turn you into a LUSH. This one has cassis for your chassis, and blackberries, also black currant and some tart plum flavors. Unlike some wines I have tried that were blackberries, there is no sweetness to this wine. It is all spice, baby. The right kind of spice. This one has a long finish and a rich taste to it, but not a bitter aftertaste. It’s unmistakably a cab,although that description makes it sound like a merlot. No mer here…it’s smooth as a cab usually is. I had one glass, and went for a second one immediately…within a half hour. THAT hasn’t happened with a cab in a while. I would highly recommend this sucker if you are having ribs, brisket, or barbecued pork of any kind. It is fabulous to pair with that. I had some after having vegetabled myself to death, and it was ok. I think a barbecued based meal of some substance would truly bring this sucker to a pleasing end. If not, drink up! You won’t regret it!
