My wife called this "crack in a bottle". She said, "If we had a case of this I would drink it all winter." My only regret is that we didn't get a case. And Winter is here.

One of the best Cabs I've had in a long time. Decanted for about 45 minutes. Second glass was better than the first. Third better than the second.

Dark in color, not in flavor. Light, cherry flavors. A little tart. Not as masculine as most willamette Pinots. Very good.

Big, tasty blend. A little tight on opening, but opened up after a bit. Don't associate Santa Barbara County with Bordeaux blends, but this was nice. And a great bargain. (and the label is fun!)

Loved it. Let it breath for about 30 minutes. A bit jammy, nice berries and very well balanced. Upon her first sip, my Zinfandel discerning wife looked up at me and said, "This is REALLY good."

Big fruit, awesome chocolate. This was a fantastic petite sirah. The only thing bad about this bottle was that we didn't have/buy more.

Decanted for about half an hour. Probably the best 50% cab, 50% merlot you'll ever have. A little big, but nice berries, chocolate and a hint of tobacco. Amazing.

Awesome. Decanted for an hour, still a little hot. A little longer and it was smooth for a heavy cab. Delightful.

Loved it at the winery. But the bottle we had at home was extremely bitter in aftertaste. Second bottle we've opened that had this. We're really disappointed.

What you would expect from a Pinot Noir from this region, this is a pretty "manly" Pinot. A little tight out of the bottle, but quickly opened up. Very good, Especially if you like Oregon Pinot noir.

Air it and its awesome. Got it as a gift and it's been sitting for a couple of years. After finally opening it for a mid-week steak dinner, wish we had a couple more bottles.

Thought it might be past its prime, but it was really good. Fruity, a little jammy. Some dark berries and a hint of spice. Wish we had picked up more than one bottle. :-/

Really tight upon opening. Decanted for an hour or so. Then opened up and eased into a fantastic Cab. Great balance.

Decanted for an hour and it was delicious. Not sure how the drinking window got listed as "drink by 2010." it's great now - not too big, but paired well with roasted eggplant and pulled pork. A little fruity, which was nice.

Decanted for two hours. Big, inky cab. Blackberries, licorice. Still very young, but decanted we enjoyed it.

At the winery this was amazing. Bottle at home was extremely bitter in after taste. Let it decant and got no better. Very disappointed, but happy we have another bottle, which we hope is much better.

Let it decant for an hour and it opened up. A very big cab; dark fruit, leather and tobacco. Delicious.
