What an incredible wine for this price! Full-bodied with attractive aromas of blackberry and cassis. Good balance with a long, satisfying finish. This winery produces other terrific reds as well, so keep an eye out for this producer. Pair this wine with a juicy, rare steak and full-bodied conversation tonight.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: steak.

Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nov 2, 2013: Excellent value cab here for $17, deep ruby/purple with nose of blackberry, currant, blueberry, cedar and spice. Good concentration, ripe berry fruit, some spice, silky mouthfeel and nicely balanced with dusty tannins on a medium length finish. Give it an hour to breath and drink over the next 3-5 years with steak, ribs or stew.
P.C. rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

After reading the notes we will need to give this one at least an hour to open up. Parker gave it a 93 but not seeing it yet. Seems very tight and not quite there in the full bouquet. Costco sells this for $14.50.

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.
