    January 12, 2014 - this was served with a bear roast and a mule deer roast. it was robust enough to stand up to the wild game and enhanced both of the meats.

    November 9, 2013 - Good taste but slightly bitter at the end. Good wine but will not buy again.

    September 15, 2013 - Subtle with classic notes of cedar and wheat. Very nice example of good California Cab. Exceptional at this price point

    April 22, 2013 - Deep garnet and full-bodied. Aromas of black currant, blackberry, and overwhelming scent of truffles. Flavors of black currant, blackberry, truffles, some cedar, and a hint of vanilla on the finish. Firm tannins and medium to long finish. A bit too much truffle for me, which I feel is outweighing the other lovely flavors. Not a bad wine for the price but I probably will continue my hunt for a great QPR red in the $20-27 range.
