90 Pts. - Tasting Panel - "With an abundance of blue and black fruit to sweeten, the chalky tannins and earth "soil" play up the savory and mineral tones of this rustic red from the Niven Family of California's Central Coast. This wine over-delivers with serious big oak-caramel and black cherry coming in from the mid-palate to finish." According to Wine Advocate
- The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
shows little Cabernet character, yet has good fruit and an up-front, straightforward feel in its red currants, licorice and spice. Medium-bodied and well made, it should be consumed in its first 3-5 years of life. Tasting Notes - Loaded with blackberry jam, cherry, black currant, exotic spices and cola, with notes of caramelized oak. 14.5% ABV.
