Much much more elegant than so many Napa Cabs. Mint, tobacco, cassis, and loads of acidity to balance.

Plum, cassis, mint, anise and a touch of tobacco. Classic Napa cab with acidity that won’t quit and alcohol that doesn’t overpower.

A classic Napa Cabernet that show true varietal character with low alcohol and not a lot of new oak.

Total throwback to old Napa. All tannin and acid, dust and fruit. The beginning of a legendary wine.

Oh wow. First time having the Cabernet from Matthiasson. This is amazing and exactly what I’d want from a Cali cab. Dark fruit, tannin, somewhat big and very smooth. Delicious.

Cousin/basically brother in town, always whip stuff out to entertain us. Anyways this is wildly rich with a purple cassis and dark chocolate tone. It surrounds the nose with dark cherries. As it opens you get like a pile of mashed blueberries/huckleberries going on. There's a 6 foot wall of tannins your palate has to jump through every sip but its deliciously coated with green chiles and the menthols we smoked. DONT WANT TO RAMBLE, but the depth of lush earth if that is a thing is key here. Think stewed plums, melted dark chocolate, a Cuban cigar level chewing tobacco. It's rich powerful and elegant. This review is over an hour and I just keep writing.. so maybe let it wait an hour then drink?

Bright, acidic, lively. I know very little about wine, but think age would round this out nicely. #earthquakewine
