Santa Cruz Mountains, California
WB Rating: 86

Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $28.00 (From winery.)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s):

Forward Cab that is ready to drink now. The nose is highlighted by dark currants, sun-dried cherries, and spicy oak. Rich in the mouth, though a bit high in acid to our taste and not quite as interesting as the '97 Cooper-Garrod George's Vineyard Cab sampled recently. A slight touch of green-ness cut our rating by a point or so, but nonetheless this is a solid and flavorful wine. - WB team 2003-03-11
