Loma Larga del Valle 'Quinteto' Red Blend 2015 image
HAD TO POUR IT OUT, THE SMELL WAS SO TERRIBLE!
Posted Jul 23, 2018[Verified]

"This wine tasted normal I guess, but the _odor_, omg, it was so horrible that we couldn't get past it and had to pour it out (smell is a large part of taste right??). My husband thought it smelled like tar, where I think it smelled sour; not like vinegar sour, but like old gym clothes sour... I wonder if we got a bad bottle? We've consumed a lot of wine in our lives and never smelled anything like this! Unfortunately we bought two bottles, so we'll see how the second one compares."

"Has a funky aftertaste, almost oaky, but definitely off putting. Not fresh and fruity. Did not enjoy at all."

"Probably one of the only South African wines I'd every repurchase haha. We typically prefer Marlborough Sauvignon blanc but this is now a runner up."

NEVER AGAIN

"Oh my gosh this stuff is gross. My husband says the same. Horrible sweet tart flavors. Maybe this gets good reviews from folks who don't normally drink wine?? We'll almost drink anything! We tried to drink this but couldn't. It's $15 down the drain. (we also tired stirring out the carbonation. But no.)"

SOLID, FULL-BODIED RED WINE, ESPECIALLY AT THIS PRICE POINT

"This is an _extremely_ tasty wine if you like the full-bodied Napa cab style.It's hard to find a sub-$25 wine from Napa that tastes like the other guys coming in at $50+. This wine definitely needs time to breathe, and just a warning, it has A LOT of sediment. I'm definitely repurchasing."
