Another blind taste... was somewhat accurate. Still... the 2011 Cannonball prior to this threw me off.

I hope this isn’t the company’s bread and butter though...

Yeah, I mean, it goes together but it’s not the greatest bread or the greatest butter... it’s just good.

Young Cali Cab Sav. Nose at open, Maraschino cherries with layer or cigar box cedar sting. First taste BIG red berry front, followed by sage next car on the flavour train, white pepper, oak barrel char followed up by a caboose of eucalyptus burn.
The wine needs 40 minutes of breathing @ temp of 18C. After this it lengthens and balances better. The front remains very juicy with Raspberry cough drop sweetness, flowing into green pepper corns, Cohiba cigar smoke and medium length finish. Cheers🍷

Hints of rich vanilla, toasted oak and mocha.

Why do all Bread and Butter wines have a strong vanilla flavor? It’s okay with the Chardonnay but odd for the Pinot Noir & Cab. Not so enjoyable.

Rating is all about value.... medium bodied, weeknight cab at a great price point.
