Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas! Dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark cherry notes along with some mocha. On the lighter side of medium in length on the finish the wine displays some smooth soft acidity and tannins. This is definitely more of a fruit forward, drink now style of cab, juicy and jammy. I would give it an -88 or so.

California Cabernet is amazingly popular – and rightly so! This one is loaded with ripe black fruit, cherry, cassis, plum, dark chocolate, and vanilla. It is an amazing value priced Cali Cab and ideal for barbecued ribs, or rare steak.

From the winery’s web site:
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is dark red in color with aromas of cherry and currant and notes of leather and tobacco leaf, along with hints of dark chocolate and mocha from oak aging. This wine is fruit forward on the entry with a rich, round mouthfeel and fine, supple tannins leading to a long finish.
Double Gold Medal,2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
2013 was a superb growing season. The wines show beautiful color extraction, intense aromas, and excellent flavor concentration.
We source our grapes from select Central Coast and North Coast vineyards where cool nights and warm afternoon breezes ripen the fruit slowly for intense flavor and elegant textures. North Coast vineyards, including Bald Eagle, showcase blackberry, black currant, richness, and chewy tannins, while Central Coast Pine Creek and Pinnacles feature red currant, plum, dried herb, and firm structure.
Aged 16 months in French and American oak.
