Very nice middle of the road CA CS! I’m not a huge CA CS fan but this was enjoyable with the delicious bone in rib eye!👍🏻

Cedar, cranberry, strawberry and moderate plus acid. A classic Mount Veeder Cab.

Nose is plum and spice. The palate features dark fruit, cedar, spice and minerals. Tart fruit takes over toward the finish that ends in medium tannins and long acid. A bit on the syrupy side due to the high alcohol content.

This is a pretty solid wine and proved ideal for our Tuesday Night Pour. As a P&P, oak, vanilla, frothy mocha, and Christmas baking spices. Sometimes I just want a rich, suave, oaky Cab and this is certainly one that will do the trick for a good price.

Really great wine, would definitely buy this again. It’s the classic Napa taste we love. Got better after sitting for 30 min or so.
