2014 vintage. Lower acidity than I'd expect from a cab, which is just fine by me. Slightly sweeter than I'd hoped - distractingly so. Medium bodied nonetheless, with just the right tannin. Plums.

Not as dry as expected though not at all sweet, still had some of the grape juice flavor hinting ever so slightly through the wine flavor which I appreciated!

Too dry and acidic for my taste and sweeter than I like. Very rarely do I actually throw a bottle out but this one I did.

Easy drinking cab, on the lighter body end of cabs. Fruit forward and sweet. Can find for about $12 a bottle.

Let me preface this by saying that I am a major David Akiyoshi fan. This wine was not really to my taste. The acidity was very high and unbalanced it for me. It is possible that I got a bad bottle; I will try another and update this review.
