Another Mar y Tierra release, this was a different breed of cab, meaning it is a little more interesting than the traditional Cabs that I have had in the past. Understanding that this might not be 100% Cab, I am made to believe that there is a little Shiraz in this, as this wine has the lightest whiff of smoky charm in it. Rounding out the taste is a medium amount of black currant and very smooth tannins.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
