I first picked up this bottle while at Canal's Liquors on Route 38 in Pennsauken, NJ. Actually, I was looking at some wines from South Africa when the green bottle with the most interesting artwork caught my attention... and the price was maybe $10.

I didn't drink it until this week when a buddy of mine needed to just talk and vent about her life. Since we were two people who have put down many of bottle of vino since knowing each other, I figured that this was a good bottle to share.

Upon opening the bottle, I was treated to a nice aroma filled with some flavors reminding me of some of my favorite fruits.On drinking the bottle, we were treated to a great Cab that definitely is a good bottle to sit idly by and talk about different world events and issues [which is what a lot of restaurant conversations seem like anyway].

Filled with the flavors of black curant, cassis and cherries, this wine is both potent, but not overpowering, the way that a good cab should be. While the bottle is sure to impress some people, or at least appeal to their aesthetic eye, what comes inside more than outrates the packaging.And for around $10, I would call this a steal.
