92 pts, Editors' Choice - Wine Enthusiast, December 2022
“This widely available Cab is always hedonistically satisfying, clicking all the rich and delicious buttons for a reliably enjoyable experience. Aromas of cassis, caramel and black cherry cola on the nose lead into a creamy palate where polished tannins present hefty blackberry flavors, with marjoram, wood smoke and sagebrush elements adding complexity.” – M.K.

While below-average winter rainfall led to some light early spring irrigation, the 2020 growing season continued with favorable weather during bloom leading to a beautiful and even berry set. Moderate day temperatures and cool nights ensured extended hang times, which resulted in wines with great structure, round mouthfeel and balanced acidity.
