  • Score: 92 Vintage 2018 Tasting Panel Fruit sourced from the length of Highway 12, which runs from Sonoma to Lodi, plays a role in this blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, which overdelivers on quality for the price. An aromatic trio of cassis, ripe strawberry, and coffee bean impresses as flavors of cocoa, nutmeg, and plum liqueur add depth to the plush body. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
