Staff Wine Review –

Good Booze. Nice flavors

Looking for a Central Coast Cabernet with some berry fruit at a terrific price? This one is pretty good. It’s not going to age much but hit it with an aerator or time in a decanter and it’s a nice pour at this price with enough young California Cabernet flavors and aromas to make it enjoyable and, again, at this price, a decent deal.

Decanter – Jammy nose, berry flavors. Tannins recede and a smooth finish. But drink it now, don’t linger for hours. This is the peak moment.

Overall -There is enough fruit in the wine worth taking some time before enjoying. Modest, but real cabernet character.
