Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 90/100
Aromas of coffee, mocha and spice as well as fleshy blackberry. The wine is aged in American oak barrels for 14 months and that that provide a rich/sweet frame and carry the tannins to an excellent place of balance. The wine is very approachable. The horses on the label are a tribute to the wild horses that once roamed the Hose Heaven Hills wine region. They were approximately 14 hands tall: small but sturdy and strong, known for their unbridled strength and freedom. Pair with a rare steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb, turkey.

Deep ruby in colour. Black cherry, cassis and espresso with hints of sweet spice. Nice smooth silky mouthfeel. Dark fruit on the finish.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Well structured and fruit forward. Full bodied, big tannins, juicy ripe raspberries, blackberry and a hint of dried fig. Beautiful crowd pleasing red offering an approachable and accessibly priced West Coast Cab Sauv. Pairs well with roast pork, rack of lamb, burgers or roasted beet salad. Tasted 2013 vintage decanted 2h in Nov 2017. 89 points.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby in the glass. Savoury nose with understated dark fruits aromas. Balanced high tannins. The juicy black cherries and blackberries flavours are wrapped in vanilla and oak highlights and end with medium-long, subdued fruit finish. Score 89.

sweet and jammy cab. A good wine to drink with BBQ
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Jammy blueberry overload! A sweet ripe berry fruit-forward with mild tannins with a thin to moderate body and long mocha berry finish. I am not drawn from these fruit bomb style reds. Still, a great party pleaser. Enjoy with bacon BBQ beef sliders. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
