Wine AdvocateBordering a region where "Cab is King" (and the prices are fit for royalty), Sonoma has diversified the focus of its reputation to several varietals. But a vintage like 2013 is a prime example why the Bundschus have always championed Bordeaux varietals on this side of the Mayacamas. Opulently deep in color, the lush nose greets with dark plums, blueberries, and black currants lifted by warm, oak-driven spices of cinnamon and vanilla, and milk chocolate. Reminiscent of a walk in Willy Wonka's factory, the seductively creamy chocolate aromas lead to semi-sweet chocolate morsels on the weighty palate, masterfully layered with almost juicy cassis, dark berries, and dark roast espresso framed by firm tannins, perfectly balanced with lively acidity. This decadent stroll ends with velvety dark cocoa on the finish that seems to think it's an ever-lasting gobstopper, lingering on and on. A powerhouse Sonoma Valley Cab (and at affordable Sonoma prices), enjoy this now with at least an hour of decanting or age for the next 7-12 years.

Wine EnthusiastThe producer sources primarily from its historic Rhinefarm Estate Vineyard for this wine, a rich expression of the variety opaque in color. Meat, black pepper, leather and tobacco give it a velvety lushness and concentration buoyed by complex, savory components. The lengthy finish is all about bittersweet chocolate.The producer sources primarily from its historic Rhinefarm Estate Vineyard for this wine, a rich expression of the variety opaque in color.
