The first glass I didn't really care for it too much. My wife didn't like it at all but then she is a white zinf. in a box person. but she does like beringer too. After drinking the rest of the bottle myself, I began to like it. It doesn't have the hard bite very dry wine has, I dont care for that style of wine, I would buy it again even if it didn't have a cork in the bottle, (it was a gift from a friend thats why we have,(had) it.
