    This is great wine for the price. It has a lovely cherry-floral bouquet and ripe cherries on the palate; the tannin structure is smooth and balanced throughout the palate. It doesn't have a lot of complexity, but what is there is delightful.

    Please CANCEL my participation in this club. Some wines were good but I guess I don't really enjoy sampling different wines as I thought I would. So would appreciate you canceling my membership. Thank you. Ella Snyder

    I generally don't like cabernet sauvignon wine because of the highly tannic nature of them. This wine was pretty mild - not super dry and I enjoyed it.

    Light but full flavored. Excellent individually before our meal but also a great complement to our steaks.

    Not too much different from the house wine that i had with steak at local restaurant last week. Certainly did not make a lasting impression.

    medium to lighter body, with a nice fruit flavor. My preference is a heavier body cab., but this is a nice wine.

    I like a wine that pairs well w/ food, and that's also enjoyable just sipping. The Willow Springs Cab did this for me better than the Rock Gate Cab.
