    Winemaker's Notes:

    Known for luscious Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak Winery's intense, lively style. Forward fruit characters of black cherry and blackberry dominate the aromas, with underlying grace notes of dark chocolate and spice.

    In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by a restrained oak character. The palate is rich, round and lush, seamlessly pairing the cherry and berry fruit with a hint of spice and vanilla. The fine-grained tannins meld into a persistent, lingering finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Heady, forward aromas of blueberry, plum and mint with hints of charred oak and graphite. Supple and ripe with accessible black fruit flavors laced with soft tannins and tempered acidity. A touch of youthful astringency in the close checks the sweetness; drinking nicely right now.

    The Wine News review of "aromas of blueberry, plum and mint with hints of charred oak and graphite" is poetic license to the extreme. Bottom line -- this is a pleasant, smooth and moderately fruity cabernet - but ultimately I found it somewhat wattery, non-descript and unmemorable. The tannins are light, and it drinks fine right now (Jan 2010). Given the price, its a good cab to break out toword the end of a larger dinner party; but I would not put this out early (ie, while palates are still discerning). I bought two bottles - won't be buying more.

    This wine definitely needs at least two hours to breathe. Very sharp taste when first opened, but two hours later it has a smooth finish with wonderful undertones. My recommendation is Rutherford Hills Cab if you can find it at a reasonable cost. "Peace for us all, peace for mankind. Peace is not an awful lot to ask." Neil Young quote from their newest cd.

    A little rough, perhaps it needed longer decant time or more bottle aging. For my taste there are better wines in this price range.

    This is a light and mildly pleasant wine...an 81 out of 100...the issue is quality for price...you can find better at a lower price point.

    What a great deal, and with the shipping program that pays for itself on the first shippment you cannot go wrong. A very good Cabernet for a exceptional price.

    I serve this wine when we have guests over. It is very reliable and a good value when on sale (under $15). Fresh and fruit forward with a decent finish it is easy to match with lots of entrees. Seems we always dip into a second bottle, too.
