Very rich and fruity with a plummy, cassis nose with a hint of eucalyptus. In the mouth there's a lot of round, rich sweet fruits and flavors of coffee and cedar lend structure to the wine.

Tasted this wine at the Snooth Panel tasting: This wine was a bright ruby color with aromas with red cherry, licorice and raspberry. The taste was hot, acidic didn't really like this wine.

This Sonoma Cabernet was medium-bodied and had a balanced taste of black fruit with hints of herbs and flowers. The finish added the subtle flavor of the French and American oak barrels that lingered. Overall a very decent Cabernet.

Really nice easy drinking cab. Lots of berry flavors. This is not a big cab which will knock your socks off, but nice to sit and enjoy on the deck or reading a book in bed.

Very young and soft on the nose, let it rest for about 45 more minutes and it opened up a bit. Still a bit achey and lacks the supple notes that i look for out of a California Cab. This is high end choice for by the glass pours in alot of "upscale" suburban restaurants in my city and frankly the wine itself is reflective. Not that good but not too bad either. On another note i bought the bottle for 18 at my local big house wine retailer and have seen it priced from 12 to 16 a glass at restaurants, score!

Wine Tasting NotesDark red with purple tones. Intense cassis, blackberry with hints of leather, accented by dried herbs and vanilla in the nose. Lush berry flavors with full, ripe tannins provide this wine with great length and power.

Winemaker's notes:Intriguing dark flavors of plum, cassis and black cherry are layered with toffee, cocoa and vanilla lifted with fresh herbs. Concentrated, structured and full on the palate from start to finish, ending with ripe, yet age worthy tannins.

Winemaker Notes - Opaque crimson center with a garnet edge appearance. Its aroma is dense, concentrated, evolving scents of plum with black cherry, blackberry and cassis, layered with cocoa, toasty oak, sweet herbs and a hint of violets. Intriguing dark flavors of plum, cassis and black cherry are layered with toffee, cocoa and vanilla lifted with fresh herbs. Concentrated, structured and full on the palate from start to finish, ending with ripe, yet age worthy tannins.
