Love the fruit both in aroma and taste. Tannins are light and a nice finish. Shows all the high points of a Zin.

Well intergrated cab tannins have softened. Smooth drinking with lots of dried fruit in the background.

Really drinking nicely. One of the better Bordeau wines that I have had and it is at a rediculous low price.

Very good.
The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like light toast. It tastes like cherry and plum. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

Greatly improved from my last bottle 7 months ago. A perfect match for my pasta with my homemade bolanaise sauce.

The tannins have softened since my last bottle 6 months ago Nice aroma and the color is very dark. A nice medium to long finish. This Cab Franc is still developing.

Tannins are a little rough. I did not decant. Hints of chocolate on the nose.

Did not decant this time.
The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like cherry with a light pleasant floral aroma, some forest floor and light toast. The tannins were light and the finish was medium. This was a cabernet with so much to offer and the price was so low.

well preserved. After all these years, a Bordeau that is very cheap should not taste this good.

Decanted for 45 minutes. Color is a dark purple. Tannins are medium. The fruit aroma I think has faded somewhat. The wine is fresh and has all the components of a well made cabernet.

The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like black currant (cassis). It tastes like cherry, plum, forest floor and vanilla.
Well made and enjoyable. The tannins are there but not overpowering. A medium finish.

Still very fresh. hints of cherry on the nose. Tannins are just lightly gripping. A medium finish.

Held on to this bottle a little too long. This was a super Cab, but now sliding downhill.
Still very drinkable. A lot of what made this a super Cab is now disappearing.

A consistent 90 plus wine. I like Matt Parish's wine making skills and will continue to purchase whatever he makes.

This is definitely my go to white wine. No surprises, just a great tasting white cotes du rhone.

A well made cabernet sauvignon. Beautiful color and subtle hints of fruits on the nose. A lot of cabernet character that you get in higher priced cabs.

Very nice red blend. Fairly soft and easy drinking. A good wine for week night dinners. Well worth the price.

The cork broke into small pieces as I opened it. Barely drinkable even after decanting for an hour.

I like this. On the nose fresh fruit. Color was a light gold. a medium finish. This wine felt like I was dinking a young chenin blanc.
The only down side was this wine is evolving closer to a desert wine.

Decanted for 25 minutes. nice rich looking color. Fruit was light and tannins were light to medium. The finish was medium. the wine was fresh and tasted great. It aged so well. A 15 year old wine.

Had to decant for 1 hour before it was drinkable. These are my favorite cabernets. So sad that this bottle was on the decline.

Not as good as my first bottle that I drank on January 2020. However, it is still an enjoyable wine. Nice deep color, Fairly light tannins and a rather short finish.
