Strong vanilla on the nose. So strong you could even go cocoa with it. It's definitely what they say it is with regard to the Sonoma Cabernet distinction. It's good, but I'd rather go Napa at this price.

Dark deep color that represents the 5% petit Verdot that appears in this Bordeaux blend. Rubber and blackberry on the nose. The tannins stripped my palate.

2012 vintage. 62% merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Zinfandel, 4% Cabernet franc. Easy drinking style with plum and some raspberry. Oak and vegetal notes. Acidity gives some lift, tannins were grippy until wine was able to open up on second glass.

Decent, straight forward American red wine. Good for the grill. Paired nicely with beef kabobs tonight.
