 Tasted by winejnky on 4/7/2009 & rated 86 points: Tart cranberries, blueberries, menthol, herbal and flinty. I may have left it a little too long. Not going to get any better, drink up. (3175 views)

 Tasted by jmd60611 on 7/23/2007 & rated 86 points: Drank at Tavern w/Megan...A bit auster at first pour after pop, but gained a bit of weight as the two hour drink cycle evolved...A good wine with no discernible memory other than medium bodied table wine (2235 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 2/1/2007 & rated 86 points: Nothing wrong. Not too much right either, though. Fruit was flat, little tannin. Drank Monday night -appropriately. (2587 views)
 Tasted by Wine Apostle on 11/8/2005 & rated 86 points: Good but not great, even at the price point. Some earthy nose with a plum palate and a moderately short finish. (3136 views)
 Tasted by NJWINELOVERS on 10/30/2005 & rated 85 points: This is one of the most consistently good Cabernets, especially in this price range. Smooth, minimum tannins, especially if it is allowed to breath a few minutes. (3108 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
