Reviews and Ratings

Sara M - WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A fruit-forward, fun wine with notes of currants, blackberries and a hint of asparagus. Ripe tannins and mouth-watering acidity make this wine an excellent pairing with steak and burgers fresh from the barbecue. Drink now, or hold in a cellar for 3 years to develop more of the vegetal and oaky flavours. A great value California Cabernet!
This pint-sized (well, 375 mol, to be exact) bottle of K-J’s popular Sonoma Cab is perfect for sharing over a meal for two. Its dark fruit and chewy tannins make it a perfect choice for a dinner featuring grilled meats. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, undated.
