This was a very nice blend. Shared with some Napa friends and we all commented on the plush taste.

One of my favorite CA cabs. Great acid, well balanced, and lean. Lots of perfumed berry.

Oak and leather on nose, full body, mild tannins, dry. Complex palate with notes of coffee and dark fruits.

Nice, smooth, cherry notes. Would like to have set it down for a while longer, but it was still drinking nicely.

Exceptional value. At roughly 1/4 of the price of its better-known neighbor in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this wine feels like an absolute steal. The nose is to die for and it’s nice and round in the mouth. Has weight to it but not as full-bodied as typical Bordeaux-style blends. If I had better storage conditions in my apartment, I would buy this in bulk!

Fantastic Santa Cruz mountain Cab, classic flavor profile, restrained, so well balanced, a long and layered finish, closer to a rich Margaret River than a typical Napa.

Rather flat and uninspiring.
