W&S 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - "This is a generous, gentle cabernet with silken textures and warm, purple juiciness to its fruit. It finishes on smoky, tobacco-scented tannins, which carry some heat. Serve it cellar temperature with a steak."
According to Robert Parker - "Conn Creek’s basic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a good, commercial, satisfying effort displaying a dark ruby/purple color, attractive blackcurrant fruit, tobacco leaf and spice box notes, and medium body. It is a competent, correct red wine to drink over the next 7-8 years." 14.5% ABV.
AFFORDABLE SUBSTITUTES FOR SCREAMING EAGLE, THE FAMOUSLY EXPENSIVE NAPA VALLEY CULT CAB by VinePair Staff, January 22, 2015 -
"This bottle of Napa Cab is a steal at around thirty bucks a bottle, and it’s not just the low price that should cause you to give it a try. This is a great wine that gives people all the flavors they crave from a Napa Cab. Unlike Left-Bank Bordeaux blends, whose heavy dose of Cabernet tends to also produce aggressive tannins, what people love about California Cabernets is how rich and luscious they can be – like being draped in velvet, as George Costanza would say."
