Brilliant effort. Very impressed with this showing. Bright acidity with soft oak treatment. Almonds, brioche and butterscotch bring home the experience.

Retains great acidity even when showing a fair amount of oak on the nose.

Owned by Richard Frank and Koerner Rombauer. Straw with aromas of ripe fruits, citrus & vanilla scents. On the palate complex flavors of crisp apple, melon & lemon, balanced with good acidity & great mouthfeel. Lingering finish ending with toasty mineral spice. Nice now but a few years in cellar will benefit.

This wine never disappoints! Love it. Full bodied. But so smooth for a Cab. Definitely a favorite.

I liked - easy going down. Maybe a bit too buttery and oaky to drink too much of.
