Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust and stately Cabernet Sauvignon with attractive aromas of blackberry, cedar brush, blackcurrant, cassis and vanilla oak on the nose of this classic Californian red wine, with a full-bodied weight on the palate. Firm tannins. Balanced cool-climate Californian Cabernet. Nicely integrated oak. Decant 1-2 hours and pair with a pepper steak or gourmet hamburgers. Finishes with notes of cocoa and wood spice.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pulled pork, burgers, hard cheese, grilled rare steak, smoked beef ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Yummy flavors of black fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, and cedar - full bodied with lots of firm tannins. Decanting for 1-2 hours prior to serving is recommended.
Rodney Strong (2014) Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied, with blackberry, cassis, vanilla and cedar brush on the nose. Needs to be decanted for two hours prior to serving with a very big, rare rib steak. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
