Same Blend as their standard Cab, except they free run the juice. Plush style

Brilliant violet. Pungent, mineral-accented cassis, cherry preserve, floral and pipe tobacco scents pick up a sexy vanilla quality as the wine opens up. Shows impressive depth as well as energy on the palate, offering sweet dark berry, cherry-vanilla and floral pastille flavors that become spicier on the back half. Finishes with excellent clarity and solid dark-fruit thrust, displaying harmonious tannins and lingering floral, vanilla and chewing tobacco notes. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, half of them new. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2020)

Very nice!!!! Had this at Ruth’s Chris for dinner. Blackberry and currant. A bit of earthy mushroom aroma as well. Very smooth. I’d definitely buy a bottle again.

Has a lot of hype, but for a $30 cabernet from this label it really should be better. Lots of oak, spices and dark fruit. Almost smells and tastes more like a syrah. Dark berries. Certainly not bad, but I expected better.
