(2009 Vintage) This is a lovely Cabernet to drink now and over the next few years. It shows its Oakville pedigree with smooth tannins and dry, complex flavors of blackberry, black currant and cherry, with a fine earthiness.
A little less fruity than many s. blancs with a bit more alcoholy tasting. Overall a nice wine...very good but not great. But worth getting again on occasion.
Fruity but not sour. Not too dry either.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2003 Vintage) Solidly varietal aromas of dried grasses and hay, melon and citrus are moderately rich and just a little on the pungent side. Slightly rounded yet also a touch narrow and pinched, the wine picks up a stony, minerally edge and closes with a hint of bitterness in its otherwise mildly fruity aftertaste.
