This wine has a lot of classic California character - ripe dark currant and cherry fruit, a hefty dose of sweet oak, and some nice mint/floral and cola notes. Balanced and exceedingly smooth in the mouth and finish, so I would not opt to put this one down much longer. Very soft and polite - almost unstructured - which detracts from the grip and overall feel. But a tasty and easy to drink Cabernet that will not overpower your meal. - HK 2010-06-12
