The Grand Estates Cabernet is solid and consistent from vintage to vintage. It often retails for less than the listed price, making it a particularly fine value. Here, again, the fruit shines with well-focused flavors of pomegranate and berry. The mouthfeel is fresh and flavors vividly etched with excellent length.
