Kristine Hart rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

This is our go-to wine. It never disappoints!
Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A deliciously rich Cab from California. Definite berry aromas, with deeper flavour of smoky oak. A favourite for serving with Italian tomato dishes!
Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This rich Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, California greets the nose with aromas of cherry and spice. Flavours of ripe berry, vanilla and cherry entertain the mouth. It would be excellent with pizza or lasagna.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Baking spices, cedar, vanilla, black cherry and raspberry aromas. The taste is more fruit-forward with cherries featuring prominantly. A very smooth wine that would pair well with lamb stew.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of cooked slightly overripe fruit, red currant, blueberry, cedar, oak is present but not too strong. Medium to full bodied, medium tannin, fruity and luscious, long finish. Steak wine for sure.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nov 16, 2014: Med ruby, lifted nose with currant, raspberry, violet and hints of green herbs. Medium-full body, sweetish ripe berry, cherry on the palate with some toasty oak, vanilla and spice. Medium long finish. Crowd pleasing and easy drinking, this is a great Cab to have on hand for the holidays.
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Black cherry dominates with a touch of blueberry. The year in toasted oak adds smoke and leather notes. A full bodied wine with lots of tannins to go with a grilled steak.
