If only more CA cabernets showed this sort of polished elegance and restraint. Youthful but eminently accessible. Savory, earthy notes dominate the red and black fruit, braced by subtle acids, a long clean finish, and a well integrated 13.8% abv. Drink now but good for five more years in the cellar, minimum.

Dried currants and oak hit you on the nose. Tannins are pretty aggressive for a 2011 and a touch of heat.

Dark ruby red with a purplish hue. Good dark fruits on the nose with some forest floor and truffles. Light bell peppers in the finish. Moderate tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Lots of soft dark fruits and damp leaves. Medium plus finish. Great restaurant wine and solid Sonoma Cabernet. Drink till 2022.

Silky smooth. Blackberries,raspberries, cassis, leather. Supple tannins and moderate acidity. A very refined, well-balanced cab.

Eucslyptus, red fruit with big tannin. A little bitter on the palate.

Deep purple color. Full bodied with flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, and hints of cola. Soft, smooth tannins. Long finish with soft oak notes of vanilla and spice.

Great cab, aged well. Let it breathe for an hour first.
