At $13 at Costco, this has by far the best QPR for Napa cab. But cost aside, the bottling itself is really good.
Plum, licorice, vanilla, touch of smoke, and hint of mint. The entry was soft, and quite delicate for a Napa cab, building up to a medium to full body.
Not for the long haul, but it does provide near term drinking pleasure.

Full not sour with a grape juice finish. Light sweetness that gives the grape flavor more richness.

Best cab I’ve had. Easy to sip, with or without food.

Costco does it again!! A delicious Cab, full bodied, paired well with tacos, chips and salsa verde.

Medium bodied, spiced, dried cherry, good tannin. Great with caramelized pork.
