AWFUL"Ordered one bottle to try because it was featured in a promotion. Not only do I not recommend this wine, I poured it down the drain. Really unpleasant and I cannot imagine serving it to guests, with or without food. Peculiar flavor that's just indescribable but reminds me of koolaid mixed with melted crayons."

A DELICIOUS FRUITY BOMB"My daughter and I both fell in love with it. A delicious fruity, light wine, with a perfect balance of juiciness and dryness. Very, very drinkable either with food or as a refreshing drink on its own, it's full of berries and a feeling of being in a shady spot on a hot summer day. You can serve this widely, no one will object, and it could be the hit of your next party."

DELICIOUS RED BLEND"Smoothly drinkable with everything from pizza to meat dishes, it's a rich blend of fruit, oak, raisins and chocolate. Only be warned that the alcohol content is 14,5, really high, so don't drink too much."

REFRESHING AND CRISP"Chill this to the point where it's almost frozen, drop a strawberry in the glass, and sip. It's like summertime in a bottle. Lemon, peach, a touch of melon, and it's suddenly July."

FANTASTIC BARGAIN!!!"Wow, I think this is the best wine I ever bought on a whim. I usually buy inexpensive wine, but when I saw this was vintage 2011 I just had to try it, and I'm glad I did. It's wonderfully smooth, complex with fruits and oak, and a wonderful treat on a winter evening. Cheers!"

BLAND"It's very dull, bland and lacking in body. I'm going to use it in my pot roast recipe. It really lacks flavor."

SOUR AS A LEMON"My first bottle of this wine was enjoyable, but the second was just awful. It's sour and acidic, not sitting well on the stomach. Drinking it is like sucking a lemon."

UGH! TERRIBLE!"When I opened the bottle I didn't notice anything amiss, but when I poured a glass and took a sip, it smelled like cat urine, with a similar taste. If I could get a refund because of this noxious wine, I would. It's awful."

AWFUL"The worst wine I've had in a long time. Tastes like grape juice with a sour, acidic finish. Poured it down the kitchen drain because it's not even good enough to cook with. Just horrible."
