So, I decided to try something different, venturing away from Zin and Bordeaux blends and decided to go with a straight Cab.  This wasn't a bad purchase, though it's not something that will be in my go-to list.  This wine shows some full dark fruits with a hint of cocoa on the back end.  You do get blackberry and caramel [just like the back label says] but I would consider it a gateway red for those who haven't really started developing their palettes yet.  The finish is quick but you are left with some lingering chocolate on your tongue bu tnot in your throat.  The alcohol does creep up on you, but since it's not to the heights I am normally used to, this won't phase me.  The color is a rich deep purple that is evident and beautiful and the mouth/weight is just on the side of being a little heavy.  Summarily, to me this taste like something that was mass produced and bottled under a number of different labels.

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.
