    September 1, 2014 - Indigo color. Raspberry and sour cherry on the palate with a touch of pepper and eucalyptus on the finish. Drinking well but plenty of years to go.

  • Ed85 Does not like this wine: (84 points)

    August 5, 2014 - disappointing now with little tannin for supporting hope for the future

  • pkatz Likes this wine: (91 points)

    July 27, 2014 - Good fruit forward Cab with enough structure and dark fruit to taste well above its price point.

    June 7, 2014 - Dark red color. Nice nose but a little tight. Opened after decant, but probably drank too soon

  • gmcd Likes this wine: (88 points)

    February 1, 2014 - A fruit-forward shiraz in cab drag that takes some time to show its true cab stripes. Even then, the fruit is a bit overwhelming, making this wine come off as a utility player – serviceable but lacking conviction and authenticity.
