I lack wine vocabulary - but this was a terrific Cab, dry, delicious and good to the last drop. It was a gift from a friend - we will be shopping for another.

One of my favorites. Drinkable, earthy, some boldness, with no bite.

2011, classical yet basic and unsophisticated California CS . Deep current color, nose full of black fruits, blueberries, plums, black current, cherries and marmalade, a touch of vanilla and oak, medium body, full of cooked fruits, nice tannin but lacking a bit of acidity. Ripe finish. My score 85, drink to 2017

Excellent wine; smooth but bold at the same time. Extraordinary wine for an ordinary night.

Full bodied and filled with taste. Reminds me of a girl I knew in 1987...

St. Francis '05 Cab. Good balance between fruit and wood with lots of blackberry and base notes. More known for Zin St. Francis puts out some terrific mid priced cabs as well. The '05 isn't as well known a vintage so is more affordable than the '09 but it stands up well to the better known years.
