I’m trying to check out but it’s saying you can’t ship to NJ even though it’s on the list.

Weird. Let me take a look at our set-up and see what’s going on.

Update: Looks like it’s a mix up on our end. You should be able to get this wine in NJ, but I need WD to confirm this so I can make the change.

Lab Rat review:

So when I got the bottle my wife was making some good ol’ fashioned spaghetti with marinara. Seemed like a good opportunity to try a nice red. So we opened it.

A nice heavy foil and solid cork shows quality in the bottling.

The bouquet was light and fruity. Dark tannins showed on the cork.
After letting the bottle air for 20 minutes or so I poured a couple glasses.

A deep ruby color with a voluptuous jammy flavor that is bright and sweet at first sip. You will defiantly be reminded of plum and cherry. Tapers off with a smooth after taste with a pleasant easy going tannin. The peppery oak is in there but only subtly in the finish. I think it balanced well with the pasta dish.
We continued to enjoy the rest of the bottle with dessert and T.V. before bed.

I am a big fan of Malbec and found this Washington cab to be very pleasant and reminds me of some Malbec I have had.
The wine is easy to drink with only conversation, cheese and crackers or a good pasta dish. Very enjoyable.

If you like a Malbec style of wine you will not be disappointed with this one.
