My notes (collective summary of 6 wine tasters' notes at a dinner party. Food paring: cheese and cold cuts appetizer, pig-in-a-blanket, primavera pasta, clam Rockefeller, Korean style BBQ bone-in beef, and Thai style fried rice): Color: Nice red color Bouquet: Good bouquet of berries, soil, and spices but has an undertone of stifled air that detracts from it. Taste: Again, the berries, spices, and earth are there but something is stifling the taste. It is almost as if they bottled a bit of the damp foggy air.
Save your money and instead buy a $2 bottle of wine. That's what this wine taste like. It reminded me of the original Gallo box wine I drank in college but not as sweet. It is dry with light flavor but due to its harsh initial taste and chemical-like aftertaste, I recommend staying away from this.
For a wine under $10, this wine is delightfully drinkable. However, it is like other well made California wine: good with Chinese takeout but not memorable.
