"A very California style cabernet that gushes with jammy blackberry and blueberry scents and flavors and is drenched in graphite, lavender and licorice, cassis, cedar and smoke; the color is a dense ruby-magenta that shades to an ethereal rim; bright acidity powers through dusty, velvety tannins to a long slightly loamy and gritty finish; foremost are those ripe, juicy black fruit flavors. 14.8 percent alcohol. I’ll confess that this is not my favorite mode of cabernet; I prefer something more reticent, something calmer. Those who dote on the fashion, however, will find much to like here, so I rate it accordingly. Excellent. - Fredric KOEPPEL"
