Broad strokes of black cherry flavour here in this big Californian Cabernet. Full-bodied and loaded with fleshy black fruit aromas plus some herbal notes. Finishes pleasantly with mocha and oak spice. Good tannin structure and balance. Needs a juicy steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, pepper steaks, smoky ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

This robust Californian cabernet would be perfect with strong farmhouse cheeses. Cannonball represents freedom: the child with legs tucked up underneath him as he dives into the water. Lots of mocha, cocoa, cola, and smoke from generous oak aging. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
