Wild berry and chocolate. Medium- tannin. 2010 vintage. Good to drink wine by itself but not well matched with ribeye steak.

This wine continues to drink well with filet mignon or without. Bright dark fruit, vanilla oak, some coffee notes, and Rutherford dust!

Wonderful wine from Dana that is approachable immediately upon opening! Bright fruit, vanilla, and dust combine to present an enjoyable second wine from the Estate.

DANA’s third label cab. This wine gets better with each vintage. Every winery should be so lucky to have their 3rd label be so good (good value too).

This DANA 3rd lable is a tremendous value. Full bodied with expressive fruit and nice structure, although a bit jammy for my tastes. A nice choice for a every day weekday indulgence.

Better than expected. Medium bodied approachable wine with some depth and nuance. I corked it last night and will finish it tonight. Will update comment if there are any changes to report.

I tried one of these a couple years ago and wrote that maybe some bottle age would help this wine to express itself. It is pleasant and is about as good as it will get. It is lacking depth and finish. Drink them now as I think they are at their peak.

Great nose but does not deliver on the palette. Some more bottle age should help (but not sure).

Unremarkable only black cab sauv. Ripe cherries on the nose and super high acidity. Strong tannins and low residual sugar makes this a little painful. Lacks structure to develop over the long term

Some of the previous ratings on this wine were concerning but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great value and drinking beautifully. Have never been disappointed in anything from Dana!
