A lovely Cabernet from California , well done and elegant, pleasant nose of: oak ,tobacco , a touch of cherry , vanilla ,blackberry , cedar , dark fruit , blackcurrant , graphite and black pepper, medium to full body with dry tannins and a good acidity, the finish is pleasant yet dry. Still young and would be better in 2021, my score 88, drink to 2025

This is a good cab. The 15 vintage was 91 points and a great value. The 16 is also very good. Grippy tannins and quite firm. Needs a few years to hit its prime.

Great wine for the food here. Nice tannins and mid palate fruit. Clean finish.

Tasty. Oak, berry, tobacco, peppery. Not very fruit-forward for a cab

Dark purple with smells of blackberry jam, vanilla, oak, and earth. Pleasant fruit with good balance and structure. Acidity is well integrated into the pleasant finish.
