Natalie's Score: 90/100

Broad strokes of black cherry flavour here in this big Californian Cabernet. Full-bodied and loaded with fleshy black fruit aromas plus some herbal notes. Finishes pleasantly with mocha and oak. This Californian cabernet would be perfect with strong farmhouse cheeses.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, pepper steaks, smoky ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Cannonball (on the label) represents freedom: the child with legs tucked up underneath him as he dives into the water. Lots of mocha, cocoa, cola, and smoke from generous oak aging. Good tannin structure and balance. Needs a juicy steak. - Community Wine Reviews
