The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon presents multidimensional aromas of plum, raspberry, tobacco and toasted oak. Rounded flavors of black cherry and black currant are interwoven with earthier hints of olive, mint, black tea and spice. Chewy tannins set the tone for a full, rich finish.

Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a terrific value and is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, and the rest Petite Sirah. It has a Bordeaux-ish bouquet of new saddle leather, cedarwood, tobacco leaf, and smoky black fruits as well as medium body, plenty of fruit, sweet tannins, and a good finish. It's not going to make old bones, but it has serious character, and I'd happily drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years.

Wine EnthusiastFloral aromas of violet and cherry blossom drop into rich black-cherry and cocoa tones on the nose of this widely available bottling. The palate is juicy in black cherry and blackberry flavors, with accents of oak and cracked pepper, all framed by a chalky texture.

Wine SpectatorJuicy and frankly ripe, with a ball of plum and blackberry jam flavors wrapped in melted licorice notes. Offers a soft, easy finish. 25,144 cases made.
