Natalie's Score: 91/100

Smoky campfire aromas on the nose. The palate is round and supple with lots of sweet chocolate and mocha notes. Cannonball (on the label) represents freedom: the child with legs tucked up underneath him as he dives into the water. Lots of fleshy ripe black fruit here in this big Californian Cabernet. Full-bodied with some herbal notes. Lots of mocha, cocoa, cola, and smoke from generous oak aging. Good tannin structure and balance. Pair with Beef daube.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled burgers, Margherita pizza, pepper steaks, smoky ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A smokey cab sauvignon from Sonoma. Good body, good acidity, med tannins, all well balanced. Fruit + smoke = easy drinking!

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.
