This organic Californian red wine is made from the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Aromas of dark berries, plums, spice and smoke. Full-bodied. Decant 1-2 hours. A consistently good producer year after year. The winemaker is Jeff Cichocki. Pair with hearty meat dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great value. This is a wonderful accessibly-priced organic California - Cabernet Sauvignon. Its approachable on the nose and palate and friendly on the wallet. Juicy blackberry, plum, graphite minerality. Balanced medium tannins, acidity and alcohol. Tasted 2016 vintage in March 2018 after 2h decant. 89 points.

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.
