|2010: 90 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Full deep ruby. Enticing aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice accented by subtle oak spices. Supple, creamy and sweet, with lovely intensity to its dark berry, dark cherry and bitter chocolate flavors. This fine-grained, nicely balanced, fruit-driven cabernet shows lovely ripeness without any excesses. Finishes with smooth tannins and excellent lift. It's hard to find sweet, attractive California cabernet for under thirty bucks that avoids greenness."
