Produced by a Napa Valley winery from a Sonoma Valley vineyard just west of the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard (and by just west I mean maybe a few hundred yards down the hillside), this wine was an absolute standout, not only holding its own but outperforming Oakville and Rutherford offerings from the same winery at double the price.
Dark, inky, and exquisite, it’s a beautiful Cabernet that perfectly sums up the 2016 vintage with its combination of power, finesse, beguiling aromatics, and supple mouthfeel. Perfectly proportioned in every way and a terrific testament to underappreciated terroir of the cooler hillside regions in the southern portions of Sonoma Valley, this is some of the classiest juice you’ll ever see at $29/bottle – not surprising, given the fruit for this wine was the anchor component in a $100/bottle Icon-level Cabernet Sauvignon.
My wife and I both enjoy this full body can
Part of Gift Package
This was included in a gift package we ordered for friends. And, they chose to share it with us; we were totally happy they did!! We enjoy full bodied Cabernets and this didn't disappoint us or our friends. Great Cab and a fantastic value!!
This fills every expectation of what I want from a Cab. Full bodied goodness and flavor. I tasted this one over a two hour span as it was breathing in my decanter, and wow it really opened up. Great Cab!!!!
So far this wine is one of my favorite CH wines. Great flavors, not too much fruit and nice dry finish. Will definitely buy this again.
A deep rich color for this full body wine. Great dinner wine. Would definitely order again.
Love the deep rich color. Full body wine that is great with dinner. Opened early to breathe.
Let this one breath.
Needs to breath
Needs to breath and then it’s fabulous!!! I loved it!!! Will definitely buy again!! Party on the tastebuds!!
Let it air a little and it was terrific. Get value for a Cabernet from Sonoma.
Needs time to Breath and then wow.
A little disappointed at first - I always like to take a taste after opening - but after about 3 hours of decanting the wine really opened up and the complexity and bold fruit were spectacular. It will only get better with age.
This was an elegant, full-flavored cab. Should be priced much higher for its relative quality. I could easily find this quality in an $80 bottle elsewhere. Must decant and probably needs more time to age. Wonderful!
