A revelation. I would rather pay the $40 bottle price in the store than the $80 at Ruth Chris but really delicious and affordable nonetheless

Probably best to drink young. Good vanilla nose with plenty of plush black fruit and licorice in the mid palate. Finish short.

A very nice intro wine for getting into merlot. A soft start with a very nice oak finish.

Very solid Napa Cab. Young but well balanced. Look forward to tasting in a few years

Well deserved Top 100 spot! Soft tannins, moderate acid, fruit forward, and some heady aromas. I like it @Josh Phelps!

A top notch collaboration between two young stars, Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps.

I was skeptical of the big rating, but this really is an excellent value Napa cab blend.
