They rank among the most consistent values in the region, and the quality throughout the lineup continues to rise. The Cab is particularly complex, starting with aromas of sweet cherry, blackberry and Jolly Rancher grape candy, backed with crushed oregano, green peppercorns and black olive. Its entry is smooth, elegant and complex with dark cherry, red currant and bell pepper, laced with pomegranate and blueberry acidity.
