I Heart Second Labels

Well this is not a surprise after researching this producer.  Cheapest by far of their cab-based offerings from Ballard and Happy canyon.  Not particularly dense, hugely ripe-fruited in the nose which blows off to match the slightly less fruit in the body.  Appropriately tannic and acidic.  Wonderful finish and balance and really a great deal.  Seems like the site said a fair Merlot proportion.  Kinda fat and lush, but in a way wine snobs can appreciate.
