Cedar-rich with blackberry and smoke on the nose. Beautifully balanced and well-structured Californian Cabernet. Juicy and mouth-watering with seductive aromas of cassis and fleshy blackberry. Pair with a pepper steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: beef liver and sautéed onions, grilled chicken breast, breaded lamb cutlets with mint jelly.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Ripe blackberry and vanilla aromas lead into a juicy palate showing ripe red & dark berries, mint, eucalyptus and dark chocolate. Velvety tannins and elegant finish complete the picture. Enjoy with prime rib or roast leg of lamb.
Tasted April 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

So nice to try this side by side with the 2016 as well. This is a beautiful Cab with some of the same cassis, blackberry, cedar, and smoky notes, but this vintage shows more black pepper on the nose rather than mint. Nice and full bodied, bright acidity, smooth tannins, fruit forward on the palate. More warm, smoky notes on the finish, almost a hint of vanilla. Pair with a charcoal grilled steak.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Central and North Coast California Cabernet is complemented by a touch of Malbec and Merlot (and a splash of other red varietals), in the blend which contributes to its flavour complexity and concentration, making this an impressive value priced wine for under $20. Deep ruby in colour, the nose shows ripe blackberry, black plum, dark cherry, cedar, graphite, cacao, vanilla, and a hint of fresh eucalyptus. Medium-full bodied with a creamy texture that evolves as the soft yet dusty tannins show up and persist on the finish. Terrific on its own, it's also a great wine to enjoy with charcoal grilled steaks, braised beef, or smoked baby back ribs. It's certainly in a great place now so enjoy! Drink 2018-2022. Tasted March 2018. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
