Not bad for being Gallo owned. A little thin for a Cali Cabernet. Not 92 points though wine spectator

Well rounded and nice mouthfeel. Vanilla and ripe black cherry.

Wine Spectator gave this bottle 92 points. BIG Cabernet, herbaceous & earthy. Dark fruits collide with rocky soil.

Pretty nice Sonoma cab. Not a heavy hitter, but I like the style, not over the top, good balance

2012 vintage. Full bodied. Flavors of dark berries and cassis with oak. Very nice drinking wine.

Ok so bought this on a high wine spectator recommendation. And I agree. This is definitely not a 8 handle wine. That's where people I believe rate on cost. This cab is full, can stand some time. Nice rich dark berry flavors and color. Try it. You'll like it. God bless Dallas. Enjoy your weekend.
