This wine is medium-dark in its purple color. The nose is a jammy black-and-blue berry festival with notes of the oak aging it underwent - vanilla, cinnamon and cedar. The palate is juicy and full of cherries and berries. It is sipping very nicely, but the tannins are firm enough to welcome a steak or pork chop.

One of the better cabs I've had, especially for the price!

Corked, but not so much that I can't drink it if I hold my nose. Oh well.

A little dry but really good wine. Full flavor.

Dark fruit. Full and balanced without the bite. I recommend double-decanting this one if you don't have an hour to let it breathe.

I don't know if my palate has changed or if the quality of Josh has changed, but I used to like this wine quite a bit and now not so much. Seems very thin, unexpressive and most of all so typical. Oaky, fruity, a little chalky pepper in the mid palate I like before it ends more suddenly than a Coen Brothers film.

Very acidic, spicy on the nose, not very oaky. The problem is the finish, to many berry notes, not balanced, and not smooth as the bottle described.
