Reviews and Ratings

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Classic California Cabernet Sauvignon with dark plum, blackberry and dark cherry flavours. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, this is a decent every-day wine to pair with grilled steak or burgers.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Great value for seekers of vibrant, juicy, full-bodied, fruit-forward California red. Medium plus bodied, medium plus tannins, medium acidity. Crowd pleasing, approachable, accessibly priced. Tasted 2015 vintage in April 2018. 87 points
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Jan. 1, 2018. Colour dark ruby red, with medium thick legs. Aromas and flavours of black fruit, blackberry, cherry, black currant, note of red bell pepper, vanilla and spice. Taste, dry, fruity, medium mouthfeel, medium acid, soft tannin. Finishes with more fruit on the front palate, not much on the back. Easy drinking wine. Good value and paired nice with grilled strip loin.
