YELLOW TAIL SANGRIA RIVALS HOMEMADE

"My wine of choice was White Merlot or White Zinfindal of a certain other brand. About 4 months ago my liquor store was out of both, and so I was going to buy a bottle of Yellow Tail Chardonnay (another wine that I enjoyed) when I noticed the Yellow Tail Sangria not far away. I am a big fan of homemade Sangria with all of its fresh fruit - just an amazingly refreshing drink. And I knew that there was no way that this bottled Sangria would taste anywhere near as good as "the real thing" but I bought the bottle anyway.BOY WAS I WRONG!!!!!! My first taste of this Sangria was so delicious that it surprised the heck out of me!!! And with each sip it just got better, and I literally made the comment that I found a new favorite wine while still drinking the first glass!!! And I have purchased this Sangria exclusively ever since - I truly cannot get enough of it!!!I am not a wine expert, but I know what I like in both brand and type and I am so glad I bought that first bottle of this Sangria. As the saying goes "You cannot judge a book by its cover", and I certainly greatly misjudged this Sangria when i first saw it in the store.The Sangria is not overly sweet at all, has just a hint of dryness (to my taste) and for me is great for any occasion. People who tend to gravitate to the more "blush" wines may be surprised since this is certainly not a blush, but the texture and taste is certainly not that of a deep red such as Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon.I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!"
