|Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Tasted blind, November 21, 2013. An iconic California red blend (82% Cab Sauv, 7% Merlot, 7% Cab Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec) that's deep ruby with a purple hue showing no signs of any aging yet. Nose is complex with dark berries, blueberry jam, leather, tobacco, spice, graphite, and a touch of damson plum. Palate is full of delicious dark berries, stewed fruit, baking spices, leading to a long baking spice and molasses finish. Very drinkable now and will continue to evolve in the bottle over the next five years.
