It's a Cab-Merlot blend, soft and made in a forward, fruit-friendly style. Dark, ripe and flavorful, it is finished with a bit of residual sweetness, welcome in a wine made for early, everyday drinking. The fruit is right up front and quite tasty, and the wine lingers in the back of the palate for a satisfying finish.
