Have not had a bad one of these, just consistently great wine. Fruit forward with spice and great tannin. Still has plenty of life left. Sad this was my last one

Great wine. Would have been even better if we'd waited another 10 years. Alas.

Outstanding. Full-bodied, yet silky smooth. Cassis, dark chocolate, currants, plums, and other dark fruits. Paired with venison. Drinking exceptionally well now.

There is a lot going on in this wine. All of it amazing, deep, and rich. The flavor permeates your tongue and lingers.

Nice dark fruits and licorice notes. The mouthfeel is smooth with well-integrated tannins.

Wonderful example of classic, balanced California cab. Just say no to high alcohol fruit bombs. Intense yet delicate and profound. Served with perfectly BBQ tri tip. Yum!
