Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A Sonoma County Cab, elegant, balanced and fragrant. Beautiful cassis and blackberry aromas lead to a fruit-forward, smooth palate with cocoa and herbal touches. Benefits from decanting 1-2 hours. Enjoy with a rare steak.
