Much smoother than in 2021 when first had the 2018 vintage. It’s thrown a lot of sediment. $22. — 19 days ago

Bought in 2005 at the bargain price of $22. I’d been saving it. Worth the wait. It was absolutely delicious, old school, refined, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at its peak. If I could only drink one wine for the rest of my life, this would be it (assuming availability). — 3 years ago
This is a tasty Cabernet Sauvignon blend from California.
Big and bold with medium acidity.
Full bodied and smooth with nice complexity.
Dry on the palate and very fruity.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, tobacco, coffee and black pepper.
Still young and needs a few years to calm down.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.
I had the 2019 before, and it is very consistent.
A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Shiraz.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

A blend of 50% Malbec, 22% Merlot, 22% Cab Sauv & 6% Cab Franc, aged in French oak 50/50 new & 1 year old, combining fruit from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruit, earthy and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and tart cherry flavors, with vanilla, licorice, citrus and herb spice. Fine tannins, well balanced long finish ending with tart fruit and a sweet earthy mineral character. Nice! A Fav! — 2 years ago
Excellent with lamb kebabs
Scent of plum, blackberry, and peppercorn. Blackfruit flavors dominate the palate, with plum sauce, blackberry, and cocoa backed by firm, but ripe tannin, which is well integrated. Long finish.

This is great now, right out of the bottle. — 5 months ago
Super Tuscan blend of 55% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot. The appearance is very dark red, raising expectations. On the nose it is rich with dark red fruits. The wine is very concentrated, very smooth (probably the Merlot) with lots of dark fruit, a bit of pepper and other herbs. Great wine! — 2 years ago
