Natalie's Score: 90/100Vintages Wine Panel: A large region, Monterey is generally regarded as a cooler climate AVA thanks to the moderating ocean breezes from Monterey Bay. However, the organic grapes for this well-crafted Cab are sourced
from the warmer southern end of the county furthest from this ocean influence. A great value, this
approachable Cab has juicy blackberry and cherry flavors as well as notes of vanilla oak all
balanced by a focused seam of acidity and suave tannins. My note: Spicy oak integrates beautifully with fleshy ripe notes of blackberries, game, dark spices, prunes and cassis. A consistent producer of well-structured and balanced Cabernets.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roasted lamb, meat fondue, mature hard cheeses, braised escarole and endive, kangaroo.
