Bit of tannins on opening. Decanted and tried 1-2 hrs later. Softened some but nothing really aspiring, not offensive but fair flavors at best. Won't search out another vintage.

Seemed a bit weak compared to other reviewers. Hmmm... Bad bottle or is it in a funky time.

Red fruit flavors, soft but enough acidity to make it food friendly. Med body.

A little butterscotch but overwhelmed by oaky malolactic notes.
Don't buy again even if under $10 a bottle.

Bottle date 2021-02-22. What a wine for a picnic, low alcohol, pairs great with mortadella, most fruits, and stood up to a Pecorino Siciliana (Pepato).

Light on the nose, light on the fruit, low tannins, just what a Beaujolais-Villages should be. Definitely will buy again.

Very surprised. Good fruit, fairly smooth, not a big nose but enjoyable overall.
Definitely a great value, buy more at under $10.

Somewhat pleasant with a very soft strawberry fruit note. Nothing notable, you get what you pay for in this bottle and it is only $6 a bottle.

1st night bright fruit flavors full nose upon opening. 2nd night lost quite a bit of flavor and started to become a bit bitter although fully evacuated.
Good QPR at $12, but starting to fade. Need to drink my remaining bottles.

Rather disappointing. Nose was almost non existent, very light body, and flavors disappeared very quickly no finish at all. Nothing offensive but for a $60 CA Cab it was lacking tremendously.

Light, flabby, no nose to speak of. Paid way too much for this disappointment.

Upon opening it tasted old and flabby. 2nd night much better. May need to be decanted.

Toasty as always but acidity much lower than previous bottles. Not as enjoyable this time.

Lite oak, smooth with a bit of a buttery component. Great match for caramelized onion, boursin, cremini pizza

Lot of jammy fruit going on here. Not quite a fruit bomb but close.
Tames a spicy chili very nicely. Not the best value for $17.

Beyond off dry almost sweet. Low acidity making it a flabby mouth feel.
Not a good year for Kim Crawford SB.
Overpaid at $12 a bottle, 2020 was subbed for 2019 after ordering. Notice the price is dropping rapidly, probably indicates the desirability.

Very drinkable, big fruit but not a bomb. Some complexity. Wish I had more.

Little nose or body. Enjoy other Gruners much more. Previous vintages were much better, maybe 2018 is too old.

Similar notes to last bottle, light palate, good nose. I think I'll let last bottle age for a while and see if that helps.

Soft, full bodied, low tannins.
Great with Radicchio and Smoked Mozzarella Risotto fruit balanced bitterness of radicchio. Gained even more fruit on second night with leftovers.

Fairly dry, some fruit, primarily tart cherry, a berry(?) note and possibly currant. Light body and earthy on finish. Not the best value.

Had for just the 2 of us with Geronimo's lobster & pasta recipe for New Years celebration. Tiny bubbles, ok nose, not much else was memorable. Wouldn't ever buy for the price. Lot better bottles available.
