Robert Parker quoted "A perennial best buy in the pages of The Wine Advocate, the medium ruby-colored Chateau Cascadais is a wonderful value. Its lead pencil and black fruit aromas lead to a medium-bodied character of juicy blackberries, spices, and cassis. This fresh, well-balanced, elegant wine also possesses a long, flavorful finish ".
