Not great

I was excited for this new wine and have loved all the wines I have purchased from Traveling Vineyard, however this one was terrible. I almost think that the bottle was bad. Very bitter taste, nothing like any other Cabernet that I have had. Really hope it was just a bad bottle, but really disliked it.

Hi Melissa, thank you for your feedback. We understand that everyone has different tastes, and appreciate you taking the time to review State Room. We're sorry if this one isn't your new favorite! If you prefer a more fruit forward cab, you might fall in love with our Lazy Lab Cabernet!

I love this wine!

I have never been a Cab lover until I found Traveling Vineyard. This wine is the smoothest cab I've ever had. The fruitiness makes this wine amazing. I can't seem to keep bottles around very long. A must have for sure!

Definitely a new Fave!

I am very picky about my reds and I was seriously surprised at how nice this one is. I can pair it with anything AND it can be sipped on its own.

Great Wine

This wine is one of my new favorites. It is so amazing! Fruit forward, but on the dryer side, like I like my cabs.

Wow!

The first sip and I was hooked! This Cab is smooth, easy drinking, rich in flavor and scrumptious! This South African Cabernet Sauvignon is a favorite for sure!

May be my new Favorite!

This was the perfect fruit forward flavor while still having the earthiness of a Cab!

Perfect Balance!

I didn't know I was a Cab lover until my first bottle of State Room. This 2020 vintage does not disappoint! Fruit forward with perfect herbaceous and earthly notes, this is a wine to sip and savor often!

So Good!

I paired this wine with Barbeque Cheese Crisps! What a great combo. The wine smells very fruity and the taste is smooth and delicious. The tannins don't overpower so the wine has a very nice, almost dark berry finish. A friend also felt like it had notes of black cherry. State Room is a great wine!

Smooth and lighter Cab for Cape Town

I absolutely love this one. It was fabulous with
my steak tonight. I’ll definitely be ordering more.

The best thing I've experienced from 2020!

Something good did come out of 2020!!! This 2020 CAB has an abundance of fruit on both the nose and the palate. Smooth and fruit forward, this 2020 Cab. is absolutely delicious! I do typically enjoy wines from the Western Cape of South Africa and this one did not disappoint!
