Eggplant hue with aromas of ripe black berries, and dark plum, with a touch of spice.
Palate--Awkward first impression with strained identity, a bitter mid palate, tasting a bit like a "kit" wine.
My wife has her girl friends over when I go to play golf and they all prefer red wine. I have told her many times that this particular wine passing itself off as "Cabernet Sauvignon" is your basic *"plonk." She still tends to grab it off the shelf even though there are many alternatives for the same price that actually taste like "real" wine. Try Cabernet based wines from South Africa, or Chile (Concha Y Toro, Casa LaPostolle and a myriad of others) and California from proven vintners like Beaulieu, Buena Vista, and too many others to enumerate.
Whatever you do, do NOT taste this wine and tell yourself you don't like Cabernet Sauvignon. You have NEVER had Cabernet Sauvignon if this is your reference point. That's not being a snob, it's objective reality. So pass this by and try something else.
*Plonk--nasty, crappy; wine worth pouring down the drain...
