From winemaker August "Joe" Briggs, who has his hand in many a wine nowadays. Despite a low level of alcohol (12.5%) this Cab seemed a touch hot. Ripe and brambly, with gobs of black fruits and a big, plush mouthfeel. Rich, but not very refined. For the millions that enjoy the heavy, fruit-forward style of Cabernet without too much tannin or structure, here is a wine for you.
