Had this at dinner the other night. Went very well with my steak. Has a great deep color. Plum and Cherries on the nose and in the mouth. A good wine but did not overly impress me.

    To me this is one of the great values in Cali Cabs. It is big with tons of ripe fruit. I usually don't like to pay over $15 for a bottle of juice, but this one is worth it. A true fruit-forward Sonoma beast. One of the least expensive ways to access the best of California Cabernet. Drink it slowly, and let it breath for a few hours.

    Somewhat rustic, with drying tannins up front, the smoky oak, blackberry, currant and herb flavors barrel through with muscle, nonetheless. This vineyard usually takes some time to come around; will be worth waiting for. Best from 2002 through 2010.

    Dark, rich and complex, with earthy clay, currant. black cherry, anise and cedar notes, finishing with a slightly green tannic edge. Best from 2001 through 2009.

    Mint, black cherry and toasty oak notes are intense, with pretty herbal shadings that provide some charm. This is a cool-climate Cabernet that's firm on the finish. Drink now.

    Ripe and polished, with intense cassis, plum, spice and oak flavors enriched by the toast of fine oak. The wine continues the long Jack London tradition of early balance and drinkability, with the promise of midterm aging.

    Complex aromas of plum and dried cherries with a hint of hazelnut and vanilla. Well strucured with a nice lingering finish. Will drink well for the next 10 years.

    Concentrated red and black fruit with spice, herbs, and hints of leather, cedar, bay leaf, and olive; full bodied and well balanced. Moussaka.
