Reviews and Ratings

Colette Martin rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A dark ruby color with aromas of dark fruit, toasted oak and hint of vanilla. Full bodied dark fruit on the palate with clove and pepper. Smooth velvety mouthfeel and medium long finish of dark fruit and toasted oak. Great flavorful California Cab.
Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose the bouquet is beyond the $23.95 price. The purity of the CS cassis elements is so pleasing to see without the jammy cooked notes more NWorld wines show. A full flavour palate which is once again a pure straight forward CS, but the star element is the nose.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
