    July 28, 2014 - Light, very drinkable cab.

    May 21, 2014 - after a day open cos it was initially just jammy and gross

    nose: ripe blueberries, cedar, star anise, bell pepper

    palate: quite ripe but very well structured and balanced. medium body. there's a lot of black fruit [ripe blackberries, dried fig, plum], spice [star anise, vanilla, black tea, even espresso] and a surprising amount of depth. the cedary finish lingers a bit

    it says 'delicious new world cab' loud and clear

    December 8, 2013 - On a bit of a Washington kick at the moment and sampling a few from our beloved Columbia Valley. I would say this offers a pretty basic example, albeit reasonably priced; a bit one-dimensional but with a moderate amount of berry fruit and a bit of grip. I might be looking for alternatives for the future.

    November 2, 2013 - My wife used half of bottle for a tasty boeuf bourguignon so I tried a glass when she cooked and another glass 36h later. Dark garnet. Vanilla and dark berries on the nose, a fair bit of oak and a bit lactic, sweet but also a touch bitterness on the palate, fine tannins. Nice medium finish. Holds up well in the fridge over almost two days.

    Not sure how much this is selling for but am quite sure it would be good value. If I had any more would put aside for another year as the oak might integrated a bit more and there is some structure for short term aging.

    October 27, 2013 - A decent cab that's worth keeping on hand for everyday drinking. Decent cedar and leather notes.
