Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark ripe inviting fruit aromas pave the way to a smooth mouthfeel, moderate integrated tannins, and an uber 'berrylicious' flavours. Overall, it's a simple classic take on fruit forward California Cabernet Sauvignon and an amazing wine to pair with smoky BBQ eats. Tasted June 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very fruit driven Cali CS. Fruit over oak in this one with a touch more alcohol perceived on the palate. Well made. Only thing I didn't like was the price.
California Napa Cellars (2014) is a solid Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley. Lots of ripe black fruit, smoke and blackberry liqueur here. Best with a rare cut of steak. - 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.
