I’m getting thirsty..!!!
:D Come on over. We found this in Tennessee! It does say St. Louis Missouri in the fine print on the label, though. Good ole InBev. But it is a good beer.

Popped the cork on my 1st of (2) 2014 Intrinsic Cab Sauv wines from the CV........

Very interesting wine. Heavily extracted for sure. Lots of dark color in the glass and a nice bouquet but that's where it stops sadly. Not a whole lot of mouthfeel or much of a finish. Good wine to take to a holiday get together but not memorable by any means and at ~$19 a bottle not a fantastic QPR but just OK. YMMV.

I thought it was very good and a good value back in those days. I've tried some of the more recent vintages and don't think it's worth the price of admission. Certainly a worthy wine, but there are better bottles from that area in that price range.

I bought based on this review. Perhaps held it a tad too long but just wasn't my cup of tea tonight. Again not bad just a little disjointed in the end. Have not picked up any since this vintage but the others all seem to be getting 90pts WE at least.

Interesting find for today. Cheaper than a Coravin for sure for the unusual times you have a half drunk bottle of wine.
