Plenty of oak off the bat, which is what deviates this wine from the brand's standard $8 Cab. Frankly, we prefer the cheaper one; this is lemony and overcrowded with coffee and mocha characteristics. The flavors of cherry and wild raspberry are decent, but the balance is sketchy and the oak and acidity seem elevated for what it is.
