Black fruits dry Cabernet. Excellent with balsamic sweet and savory dishes. California

Textbook cab.. Pencil hint of green and black ripe fruits... Ripe supple fruit on the palate with nice oak notes nicely integrated

Super lush juicy black cherries with hints of vanilla and chocolate on the nose. A big meaty wine. Love the peppery start on this wine. The pepper continues through mid palate. A long dark cherry finish!

Very light Cab. Looked for so much more body and couldn't find it. Light tannins as well, disappointed.

This was one of the Randall's random one day 40% off sale. Definitely nothing special here. Got it bc this random recommended it to us. He was a talker anyway. Wouldn't buy again. Not that it was bad but I can't think of an occasion when this would be the best choice.

I am surprised at how low this wine is rated. It’s a good tasting wine.
