An adequate everyday red at a fair price, this grapey wine has some cherry fruit and eucalyptus-like spiciness. In common with many other inexpensive Cabs, it also has slight but noticeable nuances described by various tasters as sweaty socks or ripe cheese. Still, not bad for the price. Tasted against the legendary '99 Charles Shaw Cab, it held its own. - WB exec team 2002-12-12
