Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This appealing, assertive Cab offers upfront mouthfilling fruit, muscular tannins--but with an elegant, approachable character that gives it food-friendly potential. Aromas of blackberry, mint and spice lead into balanced waves of red fruit, vanilla and black currant. The finish is lingering. Overall, an exciting and accessible wine.
