The second in a series of exceptional red wine values we’ve sourced from a family-owned, boutique North Coast winery that specializes in small-lot, top-quality wines made from certified organic vineyards in Lake County and the Sierra Foothills (and boasts a massive laundry list of 90+ scores and double gold medals from the past decade to boot).
Sourced from a kick-ass volcanic vineyard site at about 1500 feet elevation, in smartly-planted, conscientiously-farmed vineyards. Farmed to perfection and produced to be reflective of place and varietal, this is a powerful statement of quality. Already a terrific value under the original label, and an incredible deal under ours.
Cellar it, if you Got it.
Bought a few. Tried the first with a decent decant. The blackberry fruit is delicious and very prominent. I will most certainly cellar the rest.
Bought a few bottles with the intent of holding them for 2 years....still good with a long decant but will be even better next year... if I can hold out!
Be sad you missed it
Needs time in the cellar, or time out in the open before you get the good stuff. It appears to be out of stock at this point, I am so glad I bought my 2nd and 3rd case of it before it was gone.
Delicious - Great Value!
I agree with other reviewers that note this bottle needs some time in the decanter to reach its potential. Actually, I enjoyed the remainder of the bottle on the second day (used my ETO to preserve it) and it was wonderful with our steak dinner. I'll try and let the remaining 5 bottles sit in my cellar for a while.
About an hour on an open bottle before tasting.
Needs more air time!
Getting some cherry and dust with a hint of white flowers on the nose.
Quite muscular, sucking me into the glass.
On the pallet.... Raspberry infused acidity, (this might fruit forward nicely in a year)....strong noticeable tannins leaving behind some dark stone, dark cherry, and herbs with faint oak and cocoa showing through at the end.
Needs to age a year, but I have no will power, so I will open the rest in the coming month :)
Good every day wine.
Only bought one bottle, probably should have cellared it for another six months or so to let the tannins soften out a bit.
Excellent wine for the price
What a delight! A very good 'go to' wine. Glad I bought more before it all sold out.
Drinkable with a soft finish
This is a very drinkable wine with a nice soft finish. It should be aired out a little before drinking, but it pairs very well with a steak or beef dish. Very enjoyable for the price point. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
Lake County Cabernet for such a low price!?!?!! Needs some air at this young age, or a bunch of cellaring. Great Value!
I'm so pleased with this wine. And what a deal at $15!!!
If there was more I would jump at it. Glad I have 5 bottles left.
