Wine Enthusiast 90 pts
"Flavorful, well-structured and well-balanced, this is a wine for all seasons. With a medium to full body, generous black cherry and raspberry aromas, and a nicely dry mouthfeel, it is ready to pair with almost any meat, fowl or cheesy dish."

From the winery:
"Black cherry and raspberry aromas form the bright red fruit profile on this classic Cabernet. Smooth and silky in texture, refined powdery tannins provide an excellent framework for the fleshy ripe mid palate. Hints of nutmeg and espresso bean add to the complexity of flavors on the palate. The finish is decidedly long and persistent."
"A full-bodied and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon from three prestigious California wine regions — each lending their own unique characteristics. We believe a carefully handcrafted Cabernet should be cultivated with knowledge of terroir, methodical winemaking and blending expertise. Cult was developed for restaurants and wine merchants to provide their customers with a fantastic Cabernet at a fair price. We hope you agree."
