This is definitely not a cocktail wine - it is a food wine all the way. Uplifting on the palate, due to its excellent acidity, with black fruit and solid tannins. It is the kind of wine that is great for everyday drinking - with food.
This was a really average wine. Palatable but not a favorite. I bought a case. Had I tried a bottle first, I would not have bought a case.
It's okay, but not particularly notable, even at the $13 price
I also got this in my first wine club shipment. I think the website is trying to get rid of the worst bottles they have in stock. Finish almost makes it undrinkable. Will not buy again!
This was terrible, sour, acidic, undrinkable wine. I received it in the monthly wine club delivery in Apr 2010. It was stored properly, and when opened in January 2011 it was spoiled.
Was very excited to try my first wine of the month and this was terrible! So disappointing, tastes like sore throat spray.
Found this super tight...acidic. Was hoping to find a decent bordeaux at a reasonable price, but all 3 of us that drank this wine were disappointed.
