Over-delivers for the moolah. Outstanding mouthfeel and powerful flavors of red berries and a finish that is not short! For those looking for a quality alternative to higher priced Napa cabs.

All the ingredients for a spectacular showing. Delicate wine that needs time.

This Cab is very dark and offers up a beautiful nose of cassis, vanilla and sweet oak. There's a very slight herbal tinge and suggestion of smoke. The palate shows blackberry, blueberry and a bit of bramble. The tannins are quite firm and will no doubt mature in years to come. As it is, it's a wonderful wine that's ready for a grilled steak or portobello mushroom.
