Better than 2007
Medium-bodied, firm, smooth; blackberry, black currants, vanilla - flavors strong throughout; black cherry w/bite (bot not overtart) towards end; spicy pepper towards end; burst from middle to finish; finish is lingering black cherry/black currant/pepper - long;
This juicy Cab opens up after a bit
I loved this wine and the QPR is great. Reviews encouraged me to wait a few years before drinking, but I was ready for a meaty wine. I aerated it twice and it was ready to go. I was saddened when my last drop passed my lips. Good thing I have 5 more.
I bought a case of the 07 on the strength of this bottle.
subtle and sublime
Very nice cab, smooth, flavorful nothing overwhelming about any single aspect of it, but as a whole a very nice drinking experience.

Lots of wonderful flavor - almost overwhelming, but that's what I like.
Loved it. Great flavor.
We enjoyed this wine, but, feel it needs a little more time. A delightful complexity with subtle earth tannins producing a strong finish.
Very fruit forward, musky deep black raspberry and dark fruit on the nose. Nicely integrated tannins and smooth finish. Not as large or structured as some of the higher end Cali Cabs but very nice, especially for the money.

cali 351 cab reviewer!
Ordered in January. Had to wait until mid February to taste. Well worth the wait. Drank 2 bottles with 2 different groups.high marks. If the 07 is as good as the 06, I'll be back for more. Outstanding service with wineaccess. It was my first shipment with WA. Thanks.
Great Color needs to breath big full flavor finish slightly harsh
decant for an hour and this wine opens up beautifully. Should have bought more than 4.
worth the price of admission
much better after reasonable decant. Very enjoyable
let it breathe
wine needs some open air for about an hour. after that , it becomes a very smooth wine with outstanding tastes. glad I bought 6.....
Liked this wine great deal
The was the least favorite of the three that I got but it was still good a little bitter at first but once it opened up it was good.
Very nice, better when it sits for a while. would definitely buy this again.
took me to half of the bottle before I began to enjoy it's subtleties.
Just finished the last bottle, wish I'd bought more.

Light and Airy
At $24 it is too light and very little body. Price should be closer to $17.
The wine was very smooth, nicely balanced and very drinkable. It was complex with many different flavors and nicely oaked. I enjoyed this full bodied Cab and at $20+ was well worth it. I think that there are better choices at $40+.
