Great value
Smooth, full of flavor
by Kwok11910141
Delicious Cab. I served this while hosting a family dinner and everyone loved it.
Bold and full-bodied
by ThePretender
I opened a 2000 Chateau Saint Michelle Cab last night with a meal of black angus beef. I let the juice breathe for a long while. It was very impressive. Bold, full-bodied, with long finish. No bitterness. For the price, I give it 5 stars.
Very good cab for the buck
by KJT
Thought I would update the file on this wine. All the other reviews are dated. The 07 was very good from start to finish. Typical cab nose and mouth-filling flavors. I did not taste hints of leather, raisons, cherries or even gooseberries, but it was well balanced and had a good finish. A great value wine.
Smooth Cabernet - WA
by Taylor12989726
Enjoyed this wine in an italian rest. in Bellevue, WA. Liked it so much I found a wine store and brought home 3 bottle. I like it's bold, but smooth taste. So happy that Total Wine keeps it in stock.
Nice fruit , good finish
by delfonic
SLightly too ripe and sugary, saved by a long, buttery finish that makes this drinkable as an inexpensive experience in cab.
Very nice cab
by rambleOn
Nice nose with a smooth taste! Will buy again.
Full-Bodied Cab
by Macey12567604
2004 - Needs to breathe...a lot. After 15-30 mins a lot better. Pepper, blueberry and blackberry nose. Very smooth going down with hints of spices and shows obvious oak aging. Very full bodied that entirely fills the mouth. For the price, great deal. Had this with pasta and worked well, but would probably work better with red meat dishes.
Great Wine At This Price
by Forster12208971
This wine is smooth and delicious. A great everyday Cab. I highly recommend at this price point.
Top Shelf Wine with Middle Shelf Price
by goodncheap
A solid 91 in my book. Inexpensive, but never lacking in quality. This reminds me a LOT of Sonoma County wines -- for which I have an affinity. Very bold, yet smooth palate. Front-loaded with an immense fruit/vanilla/leather/oak culmination. Soft tannnis compliment this wine nicely, and the finish is superior to most 3 and 4 times its price. Goes great with grilled meat, blackened fish, or just on its own.
by Tyler11249163
Liked the Merlot of the same label a bit better , but this is a great everyday wine. Agreeable to any palate.
Good wine
by zotje
We enjoyed the smooth rich taste a lot, would definitely buy again.
Average Cab
by Thumper 12141604
A little disappointing compared to their Merlot, this 2005 CSM Cab was about as "ordinary" as it gets. A strong petrol nose, thick asphalt and leather palate and a ragged dusty finish doesn't scream "Buy Me again!" There is no shortage of other pedestrian West Coast Cabs at this price point. Sorry, but thems the lumps!
Must try
by Giffen11977522
Good but not as interesting or smoothe as Hogue Cab.
ok for US cabernet
by BobtheWineGuy
pretty good, doesn't compare to a good French Cabernet......
Above par for the price
by Burkett11260219
Enjoyed this delectable selection while dining at Ruth Chris'. Well rounded fully-bodied Cab.


Varietal Image
Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
