I am giving this one a bit higher rating for its aging potential. Had this wine btg in a restaurant recently and fell head over heels. Now regret not asking the vintage. I was blown away by it’s beautiful fruit and well integrated tannins. It had such depth and dimension. Found a 2017 bottle at Total Wine. Decanted and aerated but it just remained pretty “tight”. All the components are there in this classic Napa Cabernet but it needs a couple more years in the bottle to really shine. — 14 days ago
We had the 2013 Vintage on 7/25/20. A well balanced, fruit forward, full bodied wine. Tastes of blackberry and blueberry. More akin to the Napa floor as opposed to Stags Leap. — 12 days ago
Really good nose. Fantastic after decanting for a few hours — 8 days ago
This is a very tasty Rosé from Paso Robles. Showing strawberries, raspberries, limes, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, herbs and white pepper.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.
Medium finish with limes and almonds.
Dry on the palate and good by itself or with food. A nice pool wine.

Great viscosity. Herbaceous and zippy. Purity with great structure.. fantastic spice and jam profile. — 7 days ago
Absolutely gorgeous. Rounded, palate pleasing without being too over powering. A definite new favourite. — 13 days ago

The body full & round...well extracted. A little too much. Nice viscosity. Baked & candied black plum, plum, dark cherries, blackberries, raspberries, poached strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, dry cranberries, dark spice, smoked meats, core of black licorice, big dark fruit cola, soft tarry notes, steeped black tea, mixed berry cola, fruit roll ups, sandy soils, moist clay, eucalyptus, sage, nut skin, dry twigs, tree sap, dark spice with palate heat, forest floor with dry leaves, touching mushrooms with candied, fresh & withering; red, purple, blue florals framed in violets. The acidity round & rushes like a fresh water mountain river. The finish is extremely well balanced, polished, rich, lush, elegant persistent ending in dark spice & earthiness.
There is another point or two to be had from this bottling with three to five years of cellaring.
