Delicious and smooth after it airs out for a little bit. Well-balanced— not too sweet or dry. Classic CA cabernet.

Wow, love the oaks and tannins. I would make this a go to wines but its cousin from Alexander Valley is almost as good at a better price point.

I surprised how pedestrian this wine tastes. Disappointed with Rodney Strong which usually has excellent wines
