Surprisingly complex and restrained. Drinkable without food and great with lighter dishes.

Medium bodied, refreshing Cabernet. Short finish, modestly oaked, and commensurate tannins. Stylistically, there should be more Sonoma cabs offered like this.

To me Alexander Valley is best for CA Cab Sauv but this one feels contrived. Marc Mondavi's The Divining Rod. 2010.

Overwhelming acidity that detracts from the black fruit notes. Thin body. Tannic and the flavor doesn’t linger long. Despite all this, it’s still drinkable but not worth the price.
