95 points for less than $50! This Napa Valley “king-slayer” hails from Paso Robles in the Central Coast of California where top reds have been on our radar for years. Both vintages sold out extremely quickly – especially given the sub $50 price-point. Dollar for dollar this wine clearly stands on its own against many at 2-3x its low price. The pure size and density of rich and opulent black and blue fruits in this wine are quite decadent to say the least. The 2017 vintage had perfect growing conditions to create this powerful and lush Cab. So do yourself a favor and grab a case of this lush Cabernet for the summer grilling season and amaze your wine loving friends!
This bottling remains as impressive and delicious as it did upon debut two vintages ago. Aromas of black cherry, hickory smoke and vanilla cookie lead into a palate of brown sugar, sea salt, caramel and black cherry foam, all framed by polished tannins and just enough acidity.
