Not quite opaque but med + concentration and a deep ruby core with little rim variation. Med + intensity and med complexity. A fruit bomb on the nose and palate. Ripe/jammy black and fruit. Seductive and yummy with smooth tannins and med - acid. Alcohol is well integrated. Med length. Just plain old delicious. #justin #pasorobles #cabernetsauvignon #fruitbomb #californiacab #ctbucklinwine

Lots of cloves and vanilla. Dark fruits. Semi sweet. Moderate tannins (5.5/10) and moderate body. Furry on the palate. Great wine for a glass at the bar. Actually could be a great everyday wine. Nose cinnamon and vanilla. Baking spices

Youthful and showing some heat, but well made. Sweet dark berries, tobacco and a touch of oak on the nose.

One of the great value cabs as of late. Nice core of forward fruit, use of oak and subtle earthiness.

This time it is the 2013. Wonderful. Smooth and silky, beautiful finish, opens up nicely with time. Runner up in our 4/22/16 blind tasting.

Delicious, as expected. Can age another 5-7 years in the bottle, easily.

I love the deep red violet color. Notes of berry, cedar and black cherry. Not as good as isosceles, but priced well below. Delicious!

Dark maroon color. Not too aromatic on the nose. Big dark fruit flavors. Tannins on the finish - should smooth out with age. Tasty but not in the same league as Isocoles.
