“Once again, this delightful Cabernet blend impresses with bold, dark fruit and velvety smooth tannins melded together harmoniously for a dream pairing with any grilled meat dishes now through 2028. The bouquet boasts captivating aromas of baking cocoa and spices that lead to seductive layers of dark fruit complimented by seamlessly integrated French oak. Intensely satisfying hints of black cherry, blueberry and vanilla linger on the creamy finish. This relative bargain may be enjoyed tonight (decant 1⁄2 hour) and merits a 96 rating now and 97 over the next decade. 97 points" - California Wine Advisors (4/20)
