Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits, espresso, cedar and sweet floral notes, aged in French oak. On the palate flavors of raspberry, strawberry and ripe black cherry with notes of cacao, vanilla and dried floral herbs. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cacao, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice but need to wait a few years on this beauty.

A nice dry not to fruit forward Cabernet. There were hints of oak and tobacco, maybe some dark fruit, but subtle. She paired nicely with prime rib. With that said, she wasn’t ready yet. I think this one will be perfect in about three years.

Old faithful. When I want good wine and don’t want the burden of choice - this is old reliable. Nose: smells like good American wine! Dark fruits, cassis (I suppose), a little black pepper, blackberry. A little grilled meat in there too. Taste: the tannins hit you, I think it’s a little young. Tastes basically as it smells, plus a little bitter coffee and cocoa. Not overly soft/lush. Not a “value”, but always enjoyable. 91-92.

A luscious Cabernet. Opens up beautifully as it breathes.

Really good but perhaps a bit too young still. Great with steak though!
