This is a robust, rich, and dark Cabernet, with thick tannins and jammy plum and red currant fruits. The structure is very mineral and gritty.

Smooth and medium bodied, this Cabernet is a perfect cocktail wine: easy drinking, creamy mouthfeel, milk chocolate flavors with just a hint of cherry to@the finish.

"Didn't like initially. Strong alcohol smell. Got better over time, but not in for another" -A, summarized

With R—another great Millier. Some would say “it’s just very GOOD, ya know?”

Delicious California cab. A good representation at a fair price that has spent some time in oak. Drank it down before I could write reading notes 😅.

Dark ruby hue. Aromas of blackberry, cherry, jam, oak, plum, strawberry, and vanilla. Medium body, with medium tannins and medium-plus acidity. Fruit-forward palate, but not overly sweet. Soft and luscious finish. Easy-to-drink, with bonus points for QPR. An exemplary California-style Cab at its drinking peak.
