Natalie's Score: 91/100
I'm transported back to my favourite hand-crafted leather purse store in Napa. Love the nose on this wine ... it says, please come in and stay a while. Aromas of fleshy black fruit. Perfect for grilled pork chops.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb Bolognese, grilled New York strip loin, barbecued ribs in sauce, hard cheese, hearty meat dishes.
Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine

Dee-licious! Blackberry, sweet cigar, vanilla, and hints of black licorice, balanced tannins and acidity, with a lingering and warm blackberry finish. Perfect with barbecued meats or rustic pizzas.
Tasted 3 April 2016.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is like walking into a cigar shop and inhaling. Tobacco, dark fruit and leather. A fruit bomb with velvet tannins. Blackberries, black cherries - a long lush finish. I can picture a nice warm summer evening on my deck, grilled steaks on the bbq (finished with a dollop of blue cheese) and a glass of this lovely Cab. Sauv. Tasted April 3/2016

Tobacco, leather, smoke and spice greet you in this lovely dark red wine. Tastes of cooked red fruit and sweet spice. Medium, soft tannins, spicy and deep dark fruit make for a lovely finish . Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

A delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, medium to dark in colour. A great combination of smoke, blackberries and vanilla. Smooth finish leaves you wanting more. This is the ultimate steak wine!

Blueberry, blackberry, toffee, chocolate and date. Bold but silky chocolate ganache in the mouth. Amazing value for this price!
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Smoky cherry, baking spices, plum, and cigar box aromas. The taste continues the aromas and adds a bit of rounded tannin. A good solid traditional Cabernet Sauvignon.
|Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This traditional style Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe plum, smoky, and spicy aromas. Tastes of cherry and spice fill the mouth. This would be delicious with grilled steak and strong cheeses.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby. Plum and other black fruit, cigar box, chocolate, mint and eucalyptus. Well integrated medium tannins and balanced acidity. Classic Cab Sauv to pair with savory grilled steak.
|Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Plush, sweet raspberry-cassis nose, with some mint and a suggestion of rolled tobacco and chocolate shavings. Gentle tannin structure, quite soft palate, made for early, easy-drinking. Finishes with mint, vanilla and a wealth of sweet cassis fruit. 85pts
