Wine Spectator 87 points - A solid if somewhat muddled presentation, this is intense and offers plenty of dark berry flavors. The oak comes across as dense and earthy, like chewing on a piece of bark. Drink now through 2023. 51,242 cases made.

Full bodied, with classic Cabernet red fruit flavors set off by aromas and flavors of currant and blackberry, the Allomi Cab is noted for moderate, well-integrated tannins showing a round, plush mouthfeel. Distinct notes of vanilla and oak spice from aging in American oak add to the personality of the wine, surely one of our most popular Napa offerings.
