2018 vintage opened late March 2021. Costco $10 (down from ($20). Open for 4 nights using vacuvin stopper to seal. Held flavor and character. Engaging, drinkable, well integrated flavors. Very enjoyable, classic (to my tastes) cab in the best ways. It’s no Ridge... yet I would buy again even at the $20.

Beautiful purple red color and leather cherry nose. The oak overpowers the other flavors in my opinion. But it has nice tannins and a richness to it.

Really tasty, sweet and fruity with leather undertones. Medium high body, paired well with tomato sauce.
