This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Central Coast in California. Showing blackberries, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, oak, vanilla, plums, black cherries and light vegetables.
Dry on the palate and fruit forward.
Full bodied with medium acidity and a nice mouthfeel.
Tangy finish with fine grained tannins.
Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Will age nicely in the next 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle and better with some airtime.
Spicy and tangy. Tasty and easy drinking with mild complexity.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.m by the pool.
13.8% alcohol by volume.

This wine drank a little differently the second time. It’s a great cab but Paso Robles makes it taste a little differently than, say, Napa. Almost a slight funk or spice to it, like K Syrah The Beautiful Vineyard. I think this is a smooth, relatively low tannin cab and a solid value. — 4 days ago

Medium ruby; medium intensity aromas of blackberry, black plum, black cherry, baking spices, leather, earth; dry, medium acid, medium plus tannins, high alcohol, medium plus body, medium plus intensity flavors consistent with aromas; medium plus finish, no “natural funk”, well balanced, concentrated and complex — 12 days ago
Tasted this about a year ago so I think it’s time to check in to see how it develops after a year.
Stay pretty much the same. Cassis, raspberry, black cherry, steeped black tea, light peppery spices. Vanilla has faded further. Medium body. Lively palate with cool acidity.
Remarkable freshness at this age for a cab that cost around $15. — 10 days ago
Completely opaque. Purple and garnet with nice legs. Smells like bold cherry and dark fruit. A little sweet with some tartness I didn't expect toward the end. Cherry, raspberry, blackberry. Light tannin. I wonder how this would taste if I let it sit a while. Pretty good, decently priced. — 2 days ago
Light golden in color with a yellow hue.
Pretty nose of tropical fruits, citrus, yellow apples, melons, pears, bananas, pineapples, spices and white pepper.
Medium bodied and refreshing with bright acidity.
Dry on the palate with grapefruits, limes, lemons, green apples, spices and bitter herbs.
Tangy finish with limes and grapefruits.
This is a nice Albariño from California. Good by itself or with food. Tasty and tangy. I really enjoyed the nose here, even more than the palate.
Feels like a Sauvignon Blanc with a twist. Very interesting.
Refreshing and good for parties or the pool. I had it all by itself by the beach.
