Beautiful color. Blue fruit, leather, baking spices on the nose. Excellent tastes of blueberries, plums, raisins, and black pepper saturate your palate. Really sleek tannins, very nicely balanced and a fantastic finish. The first Moon Mountain district (Sonoma) I’ve ever had. I love it!

This wine is aging nicely showing complexity like other vintages. Medium to bold Cab with pleasant finish.

One of the bottles of the night, similar on the nose as Napa Cabs, yet had this subtly rose essence-very nice. Fresh berries, semi sweet chocolate and black licorice on entry. Well integrated tannins with balance acidity . Drinks extremely well now...

Super floral on the nose. Opened up nicely after an hour. The terroir really speaks in this wine being the it's not over oaked. Nice cab from a Pinot producer!

A seriously excellent Sonoma #CabernetSauvignon. If you find this @ThreeSticksWine don't pass it by!

Dark berries and light acidity went very well with smoked turkey. Very drinkable now but, given a few more years, this wine will dazzle.

Three Sticks never disappoints. Fully bodied, dark berry, smooth tannin Cab. Perfect warm up for the total eclipse tomorrow!!

Magnum with my in-laws. For a Durell Vineyard producer, I strangely like this more than the Pinot. It showed well.

Higher acid cab than I'm used to, yet still mild and not overly fruit forward.
