Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 93/100
A breezy, hedonistic hallway of cool mint and fleshy ripe blackberry on the nose of this lovely, aromatic Californian Cabernet. Juicy and savoury with enticing herbs and meaty notes mid-palate. Very intriguing. Full-bodied and smooth with some dark spices on the finish along with cedar brush. Highly recommended.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: chicken cacciatore, beef stew, strong cheeses, Margherita pizza.
Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
A seduction wine with perfumed nose of blackcurrant and ripe cherry aromas. Luscious palate continues with sweet spice, mint and mocha woven into a sensuous, silky mouthfeel. Elegant lingering finish. A clear choice with prime rib, but so flavourful, you could easily sit and sip this one by the fireplace apres-ski.
Tasted Jan. 2018
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Cherry, cassis and plum notes with subtle spice notes on the palate. Finishes with moderate grippy tannins. Pair with grilled meat. Tasted July 2018.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
love this cabernet for the price. It still has the vanilla, oak that a typical california cabernet has but this one offers a good depth and grippy tannin. It can easily go against any $40 or $50 napa cabernet in LCBO for the price of $26.
|Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Reliable. Dependable. Smooth and juicy like a well made Californian Cab should be. A generic style of wine with fruit sourced from 6 regions across California. 10 months of oak with 25% new American oak. Plump blackcurrant fruit, a whiff of leather and a long mellow finish. Try it with tomato, olive and mozzarella meatballs
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Always a great choice, and a crowd pleaser that tastes above its price point. Lots of mocha, ripe berry, currant, and a hint of mint mingle on the nose of this wine which made from the blending of selected grapes from across different California regions. Smooth, ripe berry and mocha flavours come through on the palate with smooth tannins. Enjoy this with a marinated flank steak or anything else you might throw on the BBQ.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Big and bold, full bodied California Cab. Crowd pleasing nose and palate. Juicy, ripe strawberry, blackberry dominant. Well balanced, medium plus tannins, integrated alcohol. Paired well with bbq chicken and ribs. Tasted 2015 vintage in Feb 2018 after a 1h decant. 90 points. #crowdpleaser #goodvalue
