Enjoying this, though it’s lower tannin than you might find a cab from other CA regions. Blackberry and leather on the nose that moves toward dark chocolate as it opens up. A bit earthy but some dark fruit too. Smooth and velvety, probably not going to age better from here. — a month ago
Juicy and a bit smokey. Blackberries, cassis, and dark chocolate. The finish is a bit thin, though. — 6 months ago
A tasty wine from CCC wine tasting. Smooth, full flavor and good ending. — 4 months ago
Berry smoothie saturated with sediment particles that go down with all the might of what's pressed out of skins and stems and seeds to chew on. Big, grippy, concentrated murky stuff. And I'm definitely chewing.
Gobs of finger staining berries, woodsy accents, florals and mint and rocky minerals. Great QPR. — 6 months ago
Very smooth, more fruit forward with the right balance of spice. Mouth feel is lighter than most cabs. Very enjoyable. — 3 months ago
Interesting enterprise to taste a 12 year old #napa #cabernetsauvignon in the value segment of the market likely around $15 - $20 at release. Cork was well soaked and wine tastes of age, but not tired at all. In fact after a day in the fridge it seems to have gained some vim. Typical bramble fruit set on top of stewed plums. Palate is a bit earthier, less fruit-forward - plenty of acidity, chocolate and coffee notes mid-palate and still sturdy tannins on the finish. It must have been stored well at the retailer. — 6 months ago
