Wine Review: The aromas on this Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon consist of cherry, menthol and allspice. The light ruby color defies a medium-plus body, which upon entry offers black cherry and cola flavors and a hint of blueberry. The wine is mainly balanced, if leaning a bit to the sweet side. The oak is modest but brings a pleasing, vanilla-infused, tingly finish. This is a very easy-drinking, food-friendly Cabernet and presents a smart value in the under $20 category. - Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: The Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blue/black fruits (blackberries, blueberries) and cinnamon spice, a good density, firm tannin structure, and a long, smooth finish.
