        Overall, I like the convenience of ordering online and not have to choose differnt wine - I get the sampler and the opportunity to try different red. Make's it very mysterious. Love that aspect of it. Thank you, WineExpress.

                Purchasing the sampler cases is a fantastic way to add to your wine cellar. Great wines are selected, taking some of the guess work out for the buyer. Every bottle I have received, has been a delight to taste and share with friends and family.

                    I have purchased the call me a cab sampler twice. Both times, I enjoyed every bottle that was sent and would purchase this again and recommend this to a friend. It is a fun way to sample, taste, and get to know great cabs.
