90 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012
Good bright, dark red. Aromas of black raspberry, licorice and sweet oak. An attractive juicy midweight with good intensity and a high pitch to its flavors of black raspberry, chocolate, cola and herbs. Firm acidity and fresh herbs restrain the wine's sweetness. The lingering finish features solid tannins that coat the incisors.

Drinkable right out of the bottle
Poured in oversized crystal straight from the bottle, this wine is drinkable and very pleasant from the first minute! Smooth, fruity, mid-bodied wine. Great by itself or with dinner or dessert. Recommend! Deb
The second bottle was much better

Very good typical 2007 cab
Nice Oakville offering
Really enjoyed this well-rounded, medium-body cab. Very nice finish...just wish I had purchase more than 4 bottles

Not at all what I had expected or hoped for. Wine was absent that robust classic cab intense complexity and taste. Was tart with lackluster finish. Have tried two bottles with same results.

Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
