The Wine Enthusiast
From this sheltered valley in Monterey, a lovely Cab blend that features ripe cassis and black currant flavors. The tannins invite a comparison to Napa Valley. They’re firmer, but the wine is drinkable now. Finishes with a chocolaty taste.

The Wine Report
Dive into the beautiful black cherry depths of this wine and luxuriate in concentrated aromas of cassis, vanilla, fresh baked cherry and subtle hints of fresh-cracked peppercorns. The luscious finish leaves behind a fine mineral trail that will have you craving more.

Medium to medium-dark ruby; ripe, plumy, slightly herbaceous, dark berry fruit aroma; medium-full to full body; rich, herbal plush, fleshy black cherry fruit flavors; medium-full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Easy, enjoyable to drink now. Highly recommended.
