Was wondering if my tastes moved away from this in the last 18 months, but I’m impressed once again with my last bottle of this 2016. I may be repeating myself, but this brings out much of the greatness of CA Cab Sauv (dark fruit, spice, graphite, cedar, incense) without the ponderous new oak attack and flabby extraction. High acid CS, great with food, absolutely ridiculous at $20. Will be on the lookout for more. Enjoyed with homemade burgers and fries.

Excellent less than $20 cab that offers purity of fruit without oak.

It opens with earthy, soil aromas and has a fruit forward start with notes of dark plum and drinks light. There is a start of complexity, however a layer is missing to complete its balance. Finishes with cherry tart, tannins.
