"2018. I really liked the 2017 vintage but this one may be even better. Nice on the sniff, nice red fruit flavors A little oak vanilla going on and a good finish for under 12 dollars. Great wine awesome QPR."

"A little on the thin side for me. Nice bright red fruits, short finish. Overall a nice cab for the price. Nice weekday sipper."

"You can definitely taste the hints of bourbon. I am not a bourbon fan but it works with this Cab. Very smooth, dark red fruits with hint of vanilla and a nice finish. Good wine for the price."

"2018 gave it 5 stars because of QPR . Rich luscious dark red fruits with notes of dark chocolate and vanilla. Fantastic Cab for the price. Will certainly get this again."

"Not for me. Musty on the sniff, no distinct fruit flavors and little finish. Maybe I got an off bottle but there are to many other good wines in this price range. Will not get again."

"Fantastic wine. Very nice on the sniff, smooth dark red fruits but not sweet. Nice long finish. Its been awhile since I had this but it is even better than I remember. Consistently excellent vintage by vintage. My favorite Zinfandel"

"2017 Awesome Cali Cab at this price point. Very nice on the sniff, cherry pie with oaky vanilla notes and real nice long finish. This drinks like a cab costing much much more. Well done going back for more."

"A little to sweet for me as a Zin. I like my Zins to have a little more power and punch to them. For one dollar more, the Predator Zin is a much better option for me. Would not get this again."

"Very nice smooth wine at this price point. Dark red fruits with a hint of vanilla. Not much on the sniff or finish but it is a yummy wine. Would surely get again. Was going to have a glass or two and just noticed it is gone."

"I ordered 6 bottles based on reviews . The first bottle I tried was not very good but choked it down after two days. The second bottle I poured down the drain on day 2. Tasted like vinegar. Would not recommend this. For $2 more - buy the Mettler Epicenter Zin - much better. I will let the remaining 4 bottles sit for a while and hope they improve. Not impressed."
