I had this wine at a dinner party, another guest brought it. The rep at Costco got a hold of her and hard core sold it. Be careful if you see these reps, they will make you believe Sparrow Hawk wines are the most incredible wines in the world. Their sales techniques are fabulous, but the wines are anything but. No one at the party much cared for this wine.

Warning if planning to bring this wine to a group, it mildly disappoints. It is not awful, but with all the other exceptional options at Costco, I suggest avoidance.

Good Napa cab. Smooth and elegant. Silky. Perfect for a Saturday afternoon with friends.

Fantastic 2013 cab that we enjoyed when we were getting away to Tahoe the first time with baby. Der war unser Hochzeitswein.

Bought at Costco. It's not bad but not my favorite. Smooth but has a bit if an aftertaste.
