"This has notes of blackcurrants, black olives, graphite and rosemary. It’s firm, delicious and so balanced, with firm tannins and yet such a juicy fruit profile. Fantastic value."

"The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Cs is going to be another terrific value from this team. Cassis, blackberries, sage, tobacco, and leafy herb notes all define the aromatics, and it’s medium-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate. It’s going to shine right out of the gate."

"Opening to classic Cabernet notes on the nose, with a fresh frame of blackberry, dark cherry and dusty plum, the 2021 CS Cabernet Sauvignon is juicy and floral with hints of savory herbs and brown baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is firm, focused and fresh on the palate, with elegance, focus, grace and a balanced structures. This is quite impressive for the price and number of bottles produced. Over 2.4 million bottles were made after the wine rested for about a year on the lees, and it boasts a soft shine from aging in 25% new French oak. Bravo!"
