100 Point Rating Guide

96-100 Extraordinary A wine of finesse, complexity, and expression. True to variety and region. Perfect balance of flavors with a long finish.
90-95 Excellent True to variety and region, with terrific complexity and balance. While not a wine for the ages, a superior example.
85-89 Good Meets your expectations, with sound flavors and balance. Might have limited complexity or be short on the palate. A sound wine.
80-84 Average Drinkable, might not have as much varietal character. Simple flavors, no flaws, but nothing special.
75-79 Below Average Might contain one flaw, simple straight-forward flavors, off-balance, unpleasant.
60-74 Undrinkable, Flawed Contains significant flaws. Unpleasant, not commercially acceptable.

Oaky, vanilla, plummy nose. A bit raisiny, but nice spice. Tastes old but probably isn't. Nice and supple but not overly smooth, good length. A definitive CA cab.

I just tried this wine because the price looked so good on 6/16/07. I was expecting to get what I paid for but was pleasantly surprised at its moderate flavor. Definite berry notes and a bit of spice.

A battle of fruits on the nose, with cherry pulling away with the early lead. Slightly tart but overall a fairly fresh and fruity taste. Finish is a little weak for a cab.

I don't love it, and I don't think it did very well living up to its price (yeah, I'm on the cheap side).
