    March 17, 2020 - Wonderful representation of the Cabernet grapes from Mt Veeder. Full bodied but packed with plenty of nuance. Paired well with steak dinner.

    January 28, 2017 - December '16 - January '17 Events: The biggest surprise of the night for me – in an excellent drinking window with evolved tannins, mountain berry fruit still shining on the palate, and some secondary earthy notes emerging. Aromas of violets, blackberries, blueberries, and crushed stones are apparent. Medium to full-bodied but lean on the finish making it pleasant to sip on over time.

    April 5, 2015 - Pretty good new world cabernet. Lots of dark fruit but too much alcohol.
