Very fine #cabernetsauvignon is suitable for aging. Very juicy and fresh with medium+ acidity and a lovely juicy and balsamic finish with sensations of bay leaf and thyme. #napacabs and reasonable for the price.

Fantastic, smooth cab. Unique jalapeño type finish! A bit fruity and caramely too. Delish!

Entry level Cali Cab.

Well balanced. But there’s no knockout punch.

Not enough power for me, but drinking nicely.

Good price/value ratio, but nothing to knock your socks off.

I’d have this with dinner any night of the week. Red fruit and that cabernet smell on the nose. Blueberry to taste with chocolate & coffee/espresso + black cherry & a little bit of black pepper. Some reserved but grippy tannin on the backend. Roll on Napa.
