This 3 year old California Cabernet still drinking nicely but was better last year. Showing black fruits light vegetables, dark coffee and black pepper.

Full bodied and soft with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and spicy with bitter notes.

Good right out of the bottle.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with hard and soft cheeses with spinach dip fresh blackberries and dried fruits.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

87 points.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black plums, black currants, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, chocolates, tobacco leaf, graphites, alcohol, peppercorn, spices, coffee and cola.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, vegetables, vanilla, earth, oak, licorice, cloves, spices, cola, peppercorn, leather, tobacco and beef jerky.

Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very nice Cabernet from California. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity. Peaking now.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (1 hour). I used the Vspin for 10 minutes and it did the job.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, plums, cherries, earth, vanilla, wild flowers, oak, licorice, spices, cloves, dark chocolates, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, wood, licorice, light vegetables, pencil lead, vanilla, dark chocolates, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium minus on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This California Cabernet is easy to drink with mild complexity. Spicy with a light mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins. Great nose after a couple of hours in a decanter.

I've had previous vintages and it is very consistent. A good sipping wine for everyday and good with food as well. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses, olives, crackers and nuts.

Recommend letting it breathe. Very nice smooth finish with hints of berry and dark chocolate. Would buy again!

Fruity, lower acidity, pretty bland bouquet. Lacks subtlety. Smooth but I wish it had a wider flavor profile.
