EXCELLENT WINE

"This is a must try and an excellent value at sub-$60.00. If you are into Cabs, this is one that should be on your list."

EXCELLENT WINE, FRUIT FORWARD WITH A SMOOTH FINISH

"Extremely nice wine, although not overly complex. It is very smooth, so if you like the experience of deep tannin and structure, then a Robert Mondavi Oakville Reserve is a better choice for you. If you like a perfectly smooth fruit forward cab, this is an excellent choice."

OK AMARONE - NOT BAD FOR A LOW PRICE.

"I personally like La Rogose a little better for the same money. Give both a try!"

OK - NOT GREAT

"There is better wine out there. nothing more to see here."

GOOD - NOT GREAT - BUT GOOD

"try it - if you hate it....then cook with the rest and make a nice red wine sauce. Open and let it sit for a few minutes and I liked it a little better served a tad chilled. If ice cold helps Coors, then slightly chilled will help this."

IT'S OK - NOT GREAT

"The bottle label is the best thing here. I had this before a STYX concert so I was even in a good mood and tried to enjoy this with my wife. Eh!?!?! Not so good. There are many better wines out there."

SWILL - COMPLETE AND UTTER SWILL

"I wanted to like this and having wine friends that hail from NY I was hoping that I could find something that had a unique storyline behind it. Nope. This wine is terrible. Go with j Lohr Hilltop over this and you will be VERY VERY glad you did. or Leese & Fitch.....or CS Wines of Substance. All better than this buy a New York mile."

EXCELLENT WINE

"again, open it and take a little sip right after opening. let it stand or pout into a decanter for about 30 minutes and then enjoy this spectacular wine."

DOMINUS...WHAT MORE IS THERE TO SAY

"I tried the Dominus 2010 cab is it tasted exactly like a RP 1oo pointer should taste. Perfection. Had several vintages after that one and they were all entirely spectacular. Had to try Nappa Nook and glad I did. Very nice wine."

TREAT IT RIGHT AND YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY

"Excellent Cabernet but I suggest this effort if you are game....open it and pout a small sip full right after opening. remember that taste. Then let it sit for 10 to 30 minutes or more and pour the first glass. This wine opens into perfection that you may miss if you slug it right after opening."

EXCELLENT - PERFECT CAB

WOW. VERY GOOD WINE AND GREAT FOR THE PRICE

"I have had the best cabernets that you can possibly get and I became a fan of Malbec after getting the Voyage Red Schooner from Caymus. This is not a fruit forward as the Schooner but this is an excellent wine and for under 9 dollars, wow. Give it a try."

YUP.....THIS IS A GOOD ONE

"Nice wine. Bring to a party or dinner and your guests will rave about it."

NOT A TRUE CAB IN MY OPINION

"OK but there are many better wines out there for the cash and do not expect this to be a cabernet......it's different."

NOT BAD AT ALL

"Nice wine."

GREAT WINE

"While I admit that I love the older bottle tops better than the twist offs, the wine itself is very good and excellent for the price."

I WISH I COULD TRY IT AGAIN

"It's been a while since I drank this Cabernet based red blend, but I remember being underwhelmed. Perhaps I was hoping for something along the lines of the Mondavi Reserve To Kalon. I don't think it was quite that. Maybe I will try it again and re-evaluate."

I AM A CABERNET GUY, BUT THIS IS A VERY NICE TEMPERNILLO

"For $16 you should try this one. smooth and great fruit and a clean finish that won't leave you looking for your water glass, Decant it or leave it open for 15 minutes or more before enjoying. Nice wine."

EXCELLENT

"purple and almost a blackish dark blue in color. very nice fruit and finishes like a dream."

Posted on Feb 7, 2018  [Verified Purchase]
VERY NICE WINE

"worth trying. true cabernet and a great blend of fruit and structure."

Posted on Feb 7, 2018  [Verified Purchase]
VERY NICE WINE

"Open it and let it sit for about 20 minutes then enjoy. Smooth and good fruit. Low on the acidic finish and low on chewy tannins."

IT'S OK BUT THERE IS BETTER OUT THERE

"Cute label pulls you in but you don't drink the label....do you?"

Posted on Feb 7, 2018  [Verified Purchase]
IT'S NOT BAD

"Worth a try but I prefer Daou, Charles Krug or Black Stallion Cabs over this"

Posted on Feb 7, 2018  [Verified Purchase]
NICE MALBEC AT A NICE PRICE. LET THIS OPEN UP

"Not bad at all but give it 45 minutes to open up before enjoying."

VERY GOOD WINE AND GREAT FOR ITS PRICE

"If you like Leese and Fich or Carnivor for its great taste and low price, then you have to try this."

Posted on Feb 13, 2017  [Verified Purchase]
NOT MY THING BUT I AM A FRUIT FORWARD CAB FAN

"I would only recommend to folks that enjoy a hard classic Chanti. Not for me though."

Posted on Dec 17, 2016  [Verified Purchase]
OUTSTANDING AMARONE

"You wouldn't like this.....please let me buy them all! Noticeably better than the Antiche Terre that I tried tonight. Worth the extra sheckles for what you get. A great buy and I will buy more, so you can move on to another bottle.......please."

EXCELLENT

"Excellent wine. buy it and I'll buy more"

GOOD TABLE WINE AND CHEAP

"decent for the price but Carnivor is a much better pick"

Posted on Nov 3, 2016  [Verified Purchase]
NOT GREAT

"Overpaying if you spend 9 dollars for this stuff."

Posted on Nov 3, 2016  [Verified Purchase]
NICE - PREFER A CARNIVOR TO THIS THOUGH.

I LIKE IT BUT I DON'T LOVE IT

"Good to try, especially if you like Grenache. Put this bad boy in a corner until it learns to calm down and behave, then it can join the others at the dinner table."

NOT VERY GOOD AT ALL

"Extremely harsh, after double decanting and a 40 minute rest. I am more of a Caymus, Jordan, Leese & Fich person. Buy a few bottles of Carnivor instead of this thing."
