Winestyr Review

California's Central Coast may not be a hot bed for Cabernet Sauvignon but as you travel inland and away from the Sta. Rita Hills, the climate becomes warmer and warmer. That, of course, helps Cabernet ripen fully while still maintaining freshness in the wine. Ripe black berry and cassis with a touch of new oak spice finishes with dark chocolate and dried savory herbs.

What We Love

  • Every day drinker
  • Excellent vineyard sourcing

Drink this with or without food, as it's an excellent every day option.

Experience

The goal has always been to provide wines that over deliver for the price point with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and a newly released Pinot Noir.

    Very drinkable, but nothing special. A Good table cab

  • Verified Purchase

    It could be the mixture of merlot and cab that I didn’t love but this one didn’t go down way I’d prefer my wine to go with a bite that never went away on the back end
