Silky, I could live in this glass! — 18 hours ago
A good everyday Cabernet Sauvignon from Monterey County in California.
Showing black fruits with oak, earth, vanilla, vegetables, spices, tobacco and chocolates.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with medium acidity.
Tasty and easy drinking. A good party wine too.
Good by itself and good right out of the bottle.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

Delicious and crisp with subtle floral notes and a bright finish. Terrific food friendly wine. — 8 days ago
Just revisited 2016, glad I knew to hold onto a bottle. With holding a year or so, obtained at tasting room pre-lockdown, the wine has pleasantly evolved in the directions I was hoping.
Color has gone from clear/green to lemon yellow, floral notes on the nose, with jasmine green tea, honey, white grapefruit pith on the palette.
Delighted to witness the evolution. Expand plantings, good job Tommy Jr.. More please.

Layered, expressive nose of blackberry, cassis, cedar, espresso, light soy source, tobacco, and herbal spices. Very refined palate with dark fruits brighten by beautiful acidity and ripe velvety candied tannins. The finish feels like endless.
80/20 Cab/Merlot from 2 vineyards, raised in French oak barrel for 18 months, 15% new (Nose suggested much heavier oak use, but by no means it’s okay).
I don’t remember when and where I acquired this bottle, but I’m glad I did. — 19 hours ago
