90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Displays a full tannin structure up front, yet finishes with a silky viscous texture. Drinks great now, and will easily go for a decade or more in your cellar.
Pairs well with grilled steaks, Osso Bucco, braised meats, dark chocolate desserts, and cigars by the fireplace.
Located in beautiful Glen Ellen, California, this area is known for its outstanding growing soils and climate. Cassata Vineyard rests along these gentle rolling hills. The entire property is managed bio-sustainably so that future generations can enjoy a pure and simple refuge in this isolated valley.

Aromas of raspberry croissant, red currants, cocoa powder and layers of graphite. The palate showcases fine, firm tannins alongside chocolate cherry lollipop, red plums, dried goji berries and toasted brioche. Supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish. Enjoy now and through 2035 with proper cellaring.
Layers of strawberry, baked cherry pie, anise, cherry lollipop, wild game, and spicebox. On the palate, black cherry jam couples with crème de cassis, mixed berry crisp, rhubarb, and a touch of vanilla.
