Light to medium ruby in color with a nose of cherries and cedar. A bit more on the red fruit side, with a touch of raspberry. Feels a bit thin for a Cabernet. Definitely more on the lighter to medium-bodied side. Finish is short lived. Came in last when compared to Stags Leap Artemis and Beringer Knights Valley. I would have expected a little more for the price.

A good out-of-town friend brought a couple of bottles over during a recent visit. Poor follow-up to Ontogeny, of course, but a decent wine nonetheless.

Rich, lush, complex. Good pairing for grilled lamb chops.

Medium bodied cab with too much fruit. Was a little disappointed! Almost tasted like a Zin then Cab. Would definitely not buy again. Slight oak flavor with little to no tannins.
