Blackberry and black cherry aromas dominate and traditional cab flavors like blackcurrant are most apparent on the palate, but the syrah sneaks in, contributing blueberry flavors with a hint of black pepper.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) Here is proof that not all classic Cabernets from Napa come with three-digit price tags. For, while this one is not as compelling as its mate, it is going to provide more early drinking pleasure, and the keen focus to its fruit and the rich, milk chocolate and ripe cherry sweetness tinged with hints of loam and sassafras in its flavors are precise portrayals of Napa Valley Cabernet in its most inviting guise. Nothing at this price compares. GOOD VALUE
