Dark red with black fruit aromas and cedar spice. On the palate red berry fruit flavors with tobacco and cacao notes. Well structured with fine firm tannins and lively acidity this powerhouse will benefit from some time in the cellar. Finishes about medium with oak notes on the ending. Tasting Sample.

1/2021. Good flavor that appeals to the entire palate. Nice color and feel. Paired well with the bone in ribeye that I threw on the grill.

This is a terrific cab from the Sonoma Valley AVA with excellent concentration and depth. The red fruits stood shoulder to shoulder to black fruits, giving the wine a fresh feel. Medium to full body with plush tannins.
I have not heard of the winery before this bottle, and was so surprised to learn that Gundlach Bundschu is the 2nd oldest winery in the California, and has been continuously owned by the same family since 1858. Talk about history!
