Great acidity and structure. Oak is in check - excellent "food" Cabernet. Perfect with grilled grass-fed beef and a yogurt-herbed-olive oil-jalapeño sauce. #wine #cabernet

Actually surprised us for the better tonight. Pomegranates, grapefruit, and cherry on the nose. Those notes made it to the palate with cedar and a pleasing herbal note. Most of it went to the Parkers stew, but happy to have some join the glass!

Nice, red blend. Dark fruit, cocoa and spice. Pairs well with food.

Usually don't like California wines, but for Napa Valley this is good. Great structure and acidity, plus it's not too bold. Would've went great with some grass feed beef tenderloin, but had no complaints with this bottle on the side of my turkey and the 342 grams of protein meal. It's a buy.
