What can I say? I enjoyed the Fish Eye Merlot so much, I decided to try the Cabernet Sauvignon and, at $4.99, it’s not hardly a risky purchase.
Creamy dark fruit and a bit of pepper, it was terrific paired with pot roast. 13.5% alcohol and no red wine headache. Many wines in this price range are harsh and headache-inducing but this Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced and rich with a pleasantly smooth finish.
Compared to other wines in a similar price range, the Fish Eye wines that I have tried taste more expensive than they are. To be fair, I saw 750ml bottles of Fish Eye for $7.99 at a different store, it just happens to be on sale for $4.99 at the wine shop up the street from my apartment.
Still though, wines in this price range are usually not that great and the Fish Eye Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent value for the price.
I would choose to buy it again because it’s good, not because it’s cheap.
