"After one sip you'll want to make this elegant yet hearty red your house wine. Fun packaging keeps the mood light but the wine is serious juice. Sure it goes with steak, but you'll want to pour it solo too." - Leslie Sbrocco

"Pure Cabernet Sauvignon, young and fruity, with tart berry and bitter herb, The light but slightly green tannins add some useful counterpoint to the cherry pop fruit, giving the wine a more substantial palate impression and length in the finish." - Paul Gregutt, August 2010

More fruit forward than most Washington cabs, this brings together a juicy mix of blackberry, black cherry, cassis and coffee flavors. The tannins are tight and polished, with pleasing depth. Think Bordeaux rather than California in style. - Paul Gregutt, The Seattle Times, July 9, 2011

"Lithe and expressive, with hints of roasted meat and red pepper stew around a lively core of currant and cherry, persisting gently on the finish."

Firm in texture, with a layer of refined tannins underpinning the pretty currant and blackberry flavors, lingering with a hint of cedar. Drink now through 2015. 6,000 cases made. Harvey Steiman
