Full bodied, smooth and soft on the tannins. Reminiscent of a red blend.

Good. Sometimes better than others. Not bad for the price.

Beautiful ruby red color. Black cherry and coffee flavor but just a tad too sweet. Although it did soak up London broil pretty well.

We enjoyed this dark purple wine with our steak dinner. Good legs on this 2015 vintage which we opened on 4/1/19.

Smooth start, dry finish, flavor in between! Cherry and fig undertones. Oak lingers on the palate.

I thought this was a very good California Cab for the price. It pours a thick, dark purple. It’s flavor is not as dry and tannic as I usually think of for Cab. It is very fruity lots of boysenberry and a kind of jam flavor. There is also a floral component which I have tasted more in red blends than straight Cabs. This went well with the lasagne and pizza we paired it with. Definitely a rebuy if you’re looking for a good value.

It asked too much of me for a daily drinker. Seems like it might be a fun choice when wine is more of the center stage.
