Powerful. Intense blackberry and dark fruit. Licorice. Inky black in appearance and tastes the same when coating my mouth.

Totally black, super rich and dense. Black fruits, licorice, graphite and well integrated wood. #badass #napa #cab

No nonsense Cab. Rich, ripe and smooth. Great structure.

Rich nose of currant and cassis, berries followed by a rich body composed of both and more. While sturdy, things melt together to produce a finish that's not only powerful but finessed as well. To me this is easily a 94 pointer.

Intense and concentrated dark red fruits, but not over the top and the 15.5% alc doesn’t really show through. Long finish of black fruit and cigar.

It’s a approachable but will be better in 3 years. Vanilla, pie spice, a lot of raspberry, red berry, blueberry, light scent of peonies.

Top California Cabernet, loved it, purple colour, smooth, concentrated and plenty of dark fruit but not overly sweet. Mild tannins and a smoky, vanilla, Christmasy finish.

Nice Cabernet. Very dark fruit accompanied by cocoa. It has closed down a bit since this summer, and at this point I think it could use a bit more time.
