100 Point Rating Guide

96-100 Extraordinary A wine of finesse, complexity, and expression. True to variety and region. Perfect balance of flavors with a long finish.
90-95 Excellent True to variety and region, with terrific complexity and balance. While not a wine for the ages, a superior example.
85-89 Good Meets your expectations, with sound flavors and balance. Might have limited complexity or be short on the palate. A sound wine.
80-84 Average Drinkable, might not have as much varietal character. Simple flavors, no flaws, but nothing special.
75-79 Below Average Might contain one flaw, simple straight-forward flavors, off-balance, unpleasant.
60-74 Undrinkable, Flawed Contains significant flaws. Unpleasant, not commercially acceptable.

Light nose w/ a bit of pepper and cherry - some tinge of asparagus/vegetal notes.

Sweet and vanilla on the palate. Maybe too much oak. Nice, but light and not delivering on the body or the finish.

My guess is very enjoyable for wine rookies. It's nice and straightforward and has characteristics that are simple but OK.

I can't get a whole lot more than oak from the nose. Slightly tart, vanilla, sweet and raisiny, but it does have a real sticky mouthfeel.

If you're into a shallow-type oaky cab, you may be into this, but I don't think it's worth $9.
