Buttery, oaky, and filled with roasted chile, cedar, branble and cassis tones, very aromatic and classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright yet rich with tannins that are a bit drying yet not a weighty wine. Kind of fun to drink and definitely in need of a nice grilled steak to combat the dryness of the tannins. Nice fresh cassis fruit with a touch of tomato leaf, creamy milk chocolate and spice tones, Nice finish with a balanced rush of fruit and wood spice with good driving acidity and those persistent tannins. 87pts

A great value for those who love a juicy cab with medium-dark fruits and good structure up front. The tannins are a bit overdone on the finish, but overall a very well-made and pleasant offering at a smokin' good price.

Rich aromas of dark fruit and blackberry are paired with cherry and raspberry flavors which ignite and excite the palate. Aged 18 months, this 2007 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon has a lingering oak finish, hints of dusty truffle cedar, and ends with smooth vanilla flavor. Dark fruit, earthy tones, and sweet spice blend together to create a well balanced and sophisticated wine that is sure to please. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
