This is a good cab, but I can't see where the pros got their rating. I say this is a solid basic California style cab. To pick at the wine -- it seems to have a bit of uncontrolled astringence and does not flow together like some of the other similar valued cabs. That said, if someone offers it with a nice steak, I would not have any complaints and enjoy it as a good complement.
I like mxpbuy's comment - fruit bomb! Sweet (though not cloying) dark fruits, with a rich, almost thick mouthfeel. Not astringent or tanniny at all. Quite mellow in the finish, sadly not all that long either, but it has a lingering dark, rich fruit taste.
