Founded in 2005 by wine veteran Mark Albrecht with the promise of producing Napa wines at affordable prices to compete with $50+ competitors. Had a glass at a restaurant. Dark red with young focused fruit aromas and pepper spice. On the palate blackberry and plum with some cacao wrapped in dusty tannins. Medium+ finish ending with some oak and mineral notes. It’s an Educated Guess if this wine will age well and really compete with $50+ boys!! I don’t see it!

Very bordeaux styled cabernet sauvignon from Napa. Dry, fruit forward, with gripping young tannins, plum, red/black fruit, slight anise, graphite, fennel, and spice characteristics on the nose... very complex young cabernet, but decent wine for $16..... just needs to breathe and open up quite a bit.

Sweet berry flavor, with slight consistent oakiness.

It's fine, wouldn't be my choice at a $20 level. Below $15 might be a good option, but overall not my first choice. It tastes unrefined.

Dark ruby red color, mocha & blackberry nose with an overripe dark fruit taste and a dry fruity finish.

Very ripe blackberries. My daughter got interested in the label.
