After drinking a couple of bottles of 625 and reading the mixed reviews I decided to write my own review with the hope of making people understand what a sophisticated and delectable wine this really is. Not a fruit bomb but certainly not a lightweight either. It’s a delicious kaleidoscope of fruit and spice, all in perfect balance, with just enough tannin to assure you that this is definitely a Cabernet.
Big taste small price.
This wasn't as big as I was hoping for, however still a great bottle of wine.
Enjoyed by all
I bought this cab with my last order and served it with our company. Enjoyed the rich flavor so much I just included in my next order.
Consumed with NY steak and roasted potatoes. Nothing too special. We both liked it and thought it was very drinkable, just forgettable. Not nearly as memorable as the Washington Cab we had from Cameron, which is unfortunately sold out now.
Needed more time in the bottle
This is a second review of this wine. When I first got it back in May, I found it to be a little thin, more like a Pinot. Had a bottle the other night and found it much more like a cab. So when it went on sale for Black Friday I bought another case without realizing it was a wine that I previously gave a less than stellar review. Can't believe it seems so much better after sitting for six months.
Hint Of Cinnamin
Not a really rich wine, but very smooth on the pallet. This wine pairs well with a fine NY strip, as well as vegetables and pasta. This is a very drinkable wine that my friends and family really enjoy. The undertones of cinnamon are an added treat.
Not worth the extra $
I tried this wine right after lot 588 and anticipated it to exceed Lot 588 in complexity and depth but found it did not. A nice food wine but for me not worth the extra buck, at least at this point.
This is not me
I like real full bodied wines like those from Rutherford or Oakville as an example, but this wine falls well short of that kind of wine. Medium bodied and rather tasteless out of the bottle with little finish, it lacked the essentials for me. Don't get me wrong, it is a well made wine, and very approachable right now, but not my idea of what I like.
Very good cab, and bargain price as well!
Very good California cabernet, and a bargain. Will buy more!
Disappointed with the 625. Thin wine , probably needs another year or two.
