  • Still full body, ruby red raspberry hints can lay another 5 years

  • Dark ruby / garnet with minimal sediment, this is drinking perfectly at the moment.

    Dark berries, plum and black strawberry combine to give a thrilling Napa cab nose and taste with long, long finish.

    If a date, this was a 25 year old accountant+model who asks to pay the bill so you can head back to the hotel room together. You of course agree as your thoughts turn to fantasy

    Fantastic, memorable juice!

  • According to WA, its a blend of: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. This was a big heavy wine mouth feel, loaded with blackberry and blueberry flavors. It still had tons of fruit left, but not much tannins. Its probably got at least a few more years of life left, until the fruit begins to dry out. It went great with a both a cheeseburger and a strip steak.

  • Opened 2 days ago.
    Deep ruby/brick at the core.
    Aromas of faint tire rubber, deep black fruits, vanilla, and wet rocks.
    Palate shows a full bodied wine, tannins are still present and seem a bit astringent, and the acidity is med. There is some heat noted on the palate from the 14.9% alcohol. The flavors are echoed from the palate, turning into tart black fruit notes, with a glycerin-laden finish that is med in length.
    This is a nice Calif Cab, a bit too manipulated for my taste, but a nicely made wine overall. Drinking really well right now, and will likely last through 2022.

  • Dark with lovely aroma in the glass. It has nice concentration of fruit without being overpowering. The currant fruit is complemented with notes of cocoa and oak.
