Earthy damp leaves and rain on the nose. Dark fruit like plum, blackberry, cherry. Some fairly healthy acid and tannins that give it more of a dry finish but not overwhelming so. Opens up nicely as it sits. Was a bit tight when first opened but given it’s a 2017 that’s to be expected.

Dig a fat, well balanced cab? Here’s a treat. Absolutely superb.

This dark full bodied wine is a great compliment with Italian food. It’s dark fruit, leathery texture and deep tannins makes this California can a must have.

Not as good as I was hoping. Flavor wasn’t all that deep.

Dark red with a nose of dark fruit. Blackberries dark cherries currant on the palate. Full bodied and smooth this is a great Cabernet.
