Ok, what does one expect from a $4.99 Cabernet? Nothing you say? Well, you will be surprised to hear that this 5 dollar cab will dissapoint the expected dissapointedness. Confused? Don't be.
This wine is a SQPR. Nice easy cabernet flavors, no weediness, no green notes or vegaetalness. just easy red currant fruits. A decent middle and not a shabby finish. Some nice things in here. Its well balanced and definately drinkable. I just wasnt expecting anything from this bottle. I bought it more of an experimnet. BV puts its stamp of approval here, as well as lends it winemaker to the label. Try it. You may be pleasantly surprised. I remember the BV regular bottling of years ago were sometimes undrinkable. Thin, green, tastless. This is a different animal.
