Medium purplish ruby red. Solid amount of spices on the nose with some black cherries, forest floor, and red plums. Quite a bit of acidity on the palate with medium to medium plus tannins (6.5/10). Solid body with notes of raspberries, vanilla, a little tart and some espresso too. Medium plus finish. Drink till 2028.

This might be my favorite vintage of this wine. Most of time this wine seems pretty dark, dense, almost sweet, but this vintage has an upbeat freshness to it that really livens it up.

Deep purple in color, this is a very typical middle road California Cabernet. I would get again if nothing else caught my eye first.

Usual pleasant mixed berries and spice, somewhat muted in intensity and complexity. Medium finish. Maybe unfairly, I had expected slightly more, especially from this winery at this price point.
