"A delicious, full-bodied everyday wine that goes with everything. Flavors of fig and raisins, red grape, a little spice."

SOUR GRAPES

"It's not crisp, it's not dry, it's as sour as sucking on a lemon. Awful."

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."

NOTHING WINE

"Just had no body, no flavor. Very boring."

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."

GOOD VERSATILE CHOICE

"A full bodied, flavorful red with fruit and oak notes, it's good with all red meats, burgers and sharp cheddar cheese."

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!"

GOOD EVERYDAY WINE

"Not a lot of complexity, but a pleasant wine that pairs well with beef and pasta dishes, and with pizza."

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."

DELICIOUS FRUIT

"Flavors of blackberry, cherry, raisin, fig are delightful surprises. A delicious wine that is great with meats, pizza, cheese, and even with a nibble of chocolate!"

CRISP, REFRESHING, DELICIOUS

"Wonderfully dry without sourness and excessive acidity, this lovely wine has notes of pear and apple, so enjoyable with seafood or just on an afternoon sitting on the patio. Glad I tried it!"

DIFFERENT

"I usually hate Chardonnay because it's hard on my stomach and tastes sour. I like this one because it's full of flavor, smooth and with just a touch of oak."

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."

CHEWY GOODNESS

"Delicious plum, blackberry, cherry with a bit of oak and figs, dense and substantial, perfect with a good steak or prime rib. It's the "go to" red wine in our house."
